Pau used to be amazing, it's been a long long time since he was dominant.
Jose is an expiring and I'd rather have Pau's salary next season then hear BC talk about some false sense of significant cap space and have another mediocre wing player signed. Pau has been a #2 option on a championship team. Even if he does "bad", his "bad" right now is 13 ppg, 9 rpg, 3.3 apg and 1.3 bpg which wouldn't be horrible. Also, he's shooting bad but he's been a solid option on offense before. It's hard not seeing his FG % increase here and his PPG increase as well, if not, he expires next year (as does KL).
