I wasn't sure to just post this in the trade forum but felt this needed to be discussed
We all know we need help all over the roster but IMO the sg depth is our strongest with Shump/JR/THJH
However our biggest need is obviously pg so one of them has to go
You can say JR is our best overall sg out of the 3. Finally healthy he has turn it on last month and a half putting up borderline allstar numbers.
Without getting to stat heavy with this he is a plus on the floor when he plays and is in the top 10 for sg in orpm(offensive real plus minus)
Even though he is capable to defend he just doesn't play defense at times and hurts us a lot in the closing minutes. When he is not on the floor our defense is 5 points better and outside the top 40 in drpm which means he just doesn't impact the floor on that side
He also has a lot of history when off the court issues that has plague this team
Iman was suppose to be our next 3rd option player but never live up to it. He has and up and down season and a lot of dud games. Despite all that he helps this team more ways then not
He isn't the offensive juggernaut we wanted him to be but when he is on the floor he helps our offense by moving the ball and taking good shots even with his low % from the field
His defense is probably his most underrated in his lost season. I've seen him get lost so many times but he still puts pressure on opposing players and even does the little intangibles.
To prove his worth on numbers we are a staggering 6.8 points worse when he is off the floor and he is 3rd behind Danny green and Tony allen in drpm. That in itself is a little crazy but I notice in the games we played without him our defense look so bad.
Then our prize rookie Tim Hardaway Jr. Kid makes big shots and can score in bunches but can he open up his overall game?
On offense we are actually worse when he plays since he takes the first available shot given without actually moving the ball but the most telling is his defense
When he is on the floor our defense is 6.9 points worse and of the 91 available sg in the league on defense he is rank 90. Ouch.
However he is still a rookie and his worth ethic is one of the best on the team so maybe he can get better but he has to do more then just score and do a little of everything else
Thoughts on this guys. Who do you think we keep? Who should go?
