It's a tradeoff with JB and Jose. you lose 2-3 dimes/game but you gain 8 points, youth, someone who can actually run, a pg whose ballhandling/decision-making is more conservative the omnibus crime bill, someone who can actually drive to the basket and break down opposing teams' d (the only guy on the raps who can actually do that)
Indeed. Jennings is worst case scenario for me in terms of PG. AST% of 26.7. USG% of 25.9. That's not a PG. That's a SG. Throw in the inefficiency and complete lack of any defense at all, and it is no surprise his team gets better defensively when he sits down (by about 11 points per 100 possessions!), and only slightly worse offensively - not great for the offensive "sparkplug" of your team.
