My concern is that Kemba needs volume to sustain a decent percentage. I'm not sure that's the best fit for the Raps, even if Kemba turns out to be a respectable pro for another team, which I think he could be. That's why I didn't want to call him a chucker. He might be a solid player in a particular role. Maybe he turns into an awesome 6th man like Terry or Crawford. Who knows?

IIRC Collison had pretty limited range coming out of UCLA. Maybe I'm wrong.
Both Collison and Lawson shot a high percentage from behind the arc. Collison shot over 40% from 3 for his college career, and that was on a significant amount of attempts.

It's really unfortunate the Raps didn't have a second first rounder in 2009. That draft was quite deep at PG, even outside the lottery. Jrue, Collison, Lawson - all of them are respectable players with their best ball ahead of them.
