You're trading one inconsistent sophmore for another inconsistent freshman.

Mbah a Moute was 2.5 years old and 2 inches shorter. And from what I remember, any hype surrounding him was based exclusively on defense.
He's already more efficient and the better defender. IMO he'll end up better than DD unless he doesn't want it. It will all come down to work ethic.

Efficiency means nothing when you're comparing the number one option in the offense versus a spot-up shooter. It's an apples and oranges comparison as far as efficiency goes. But regardless, Antetekounmpo would fit pretty well beside either one because he is so versatile.

The Derozan part is a bit out of line when I really think about it since I've only seen Antetekounmpo play three games and Demar is already one of the best scoring guards in the league.
