JV sets some nice screens, but he doesn't trust his shot and around the basket you won't get too many chances in crunch time when teams are more focused and the offense goes in half-court mode.
Amir's jumper is still laughable. His stroke is incredibly slow and although it does go in now more than it did before I wouldn't call it "reliable". He's better than JV because he has experience... plain & simple.

Once JV gets that experience he'll be MILES ahead of Amir (and any other big one the roster). He already plays bigger IMO.

As for the Gay for Bargs+Jose trade... I'd do it TBH. I'd be comfortable getting an all-star calibre SF and letting Lucas take over the back up PG duties while giving Amir and Ed more minutes at the 4. I think we'd be a better team in the long run.
