The only reason Bargnani scoring increased this year is because he chucked up an additional 3.5 shots per game. Next year, Derozan, Ed Davis, Bayless, and the rookie will be putting up more shots. If he comes of the bench, his scoring will decrease based on limited a role and other players putting up more shots. Let face it, the only selling point on Bargnani is his scoring because he brings nothing else (defense and rebounding) to the table. If his scoring drops, his stock will drop. Sell him high with 21 pts scoring average (on 18 shot attempts), because he "does things more complicated than defense and rebounding."
