    His Stats
    37.5 minutes
    44% FG
    31% 3PT
    81% FT
    18.1 PPG
    4.9 RPG
    1.9 APG
    1.2 SPG
    1.5 TOPG

    Although its been only 30 games, he has improved every year he has played. His 3pts% was always below 25% for the last 3 seasons. I feel bad for him and lowry playing for the Raptors... If he did move from a team, can he be a good 2nd option for a team or no?

    Isn't he the 2nd option now for the Raptors? If you mean the 2nd option for a contender then NO, he's not good enough.

    No, the only reason he puts up #'s is cuz he gets tons of touches. He's terrible off the ball, and he's terrible defensively.

    Seconded. Whatever the stats may say, he doesn't pass the eye-test at all. I've been to a Raptors game and he's a pure high-volume player who puts no effort on defense at all.

    He may be improving season-by-season but its within a crappy Raptors system and he wouldn't be productive on a decent team.

    Oh. but what about with good coaching. This guy has been getting some crappy coaching.. I don't know I haven't watched much Raptors ball but I've seen what he can do from time to time, and it looked pretty impressive to me.

    I think he needs a coach like Pop to keep him in check. He doesn't try on defense at all and he tends to be a ball hog. On a team like the Raptors he's a 2nd option, but definitely not on any good teams. He does have potential though, he just needs to get out of that crappy Raptors franchise.
