    As a guy who is "not a real point guard" per the profile in the first post, he still averaged about 1.5 assists per game more than the top assist guy on the Rockets.

    Also averages 1 fewer turnover.

    Btw I’ve investigated this claim that he’s not a real PG and it’s hogwash. He can orchestrate any type of offense. Great in PnR and hitting corner 3pt shooters.

    The only reason his assists are not higher is because both Siakam and Barnes do a lot of creating for them and he spent a lot more time off ball last season.

    I think of the Rockets Front Office and its various insider messengers like a flustered Dallek robot -

    Wow! More than 40 million a year! That third year surprises me. I wonder if we're going to end up finding out it's a team option?

    And their teams are desperately desperately trying to keep them.

    I'm not wearing down the F5 key. I'm on my phone. Click, look. Click, look.

    One more year and more per year than expected.

    I am ok, given the circumstances, as long as he is not the only one coming. Brook might have been holding to know who else was coming. Brooks is a possible s&t.
