He did the same thing the year before, while playing for Cleveland. During the last 15 games of the 2010-2011 season, he put up nice stats. He produces when he gets minutes and touches. But he won't get those on a winning team. You can't win games with this guy as one of your top 3 options.
I used to lobby for him as potentially becoming a really good role player, but he can't seem to do much when his touches and PT are limitied. He absolutely stunk when he played for Sacramento in a reduced role.
Somebody will pick him up. If it's losing team with minutes and touches to give him, he'll probably put up some stats. If it's a team looking for him to play a bit role, I suspect he'll be inefficient.
