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."
The only decision to be made here is if the Raps can use him in the next couple of years or if he should be traded, and what do we get in return.
