He's about the same size and length as Gay. They're both very good rebounders, Rudy Gay at the same age averaged 19.6/6/2 on a far better field goal percentage (47%). I even find they look alike.
Paul George had a 53.1 TS% last year. He shot 41.9% from the field
and scored less points-per-shot than DeMar did. He also had 3 TO per game. He's not a max guy, he has potential to be but he has his issues and at 23yrs old it's difficult to say how this will turn out in 3-4yrs.
Is he worth 18-20mil/yr.....no, is Rudy Gay worth 18-20mil.....no.
