    I know this might sound like a tall order, but I see him getting all the minutes he can handle out top as this, at least for NOW, becomes HIS team.

    Jalen, Wall, and EG should cut into each others minutes until the veterans are gone.

    He might put up 20 but 10 assists is very very hard to hit, especially with Wall still here.

    no, green will get his starter minutes while KPJ has to split with wall and EG if they’re not traded!

    KPJ should get the 20 points, but probably comes up short on assists.

    20+/7 or 20+/8 sounds like the target

    I can't see him getting the assists. I see KP being the one sharing minutes with Wall, not Green. Green's our big draft pick, KP's the reclamation project as good as he is.

    First good post of you in quite a while.

    agree, 20 should be possible and probable, 10 assists are too high.

    Hell no. KPJ has earned his spot.

    As much as i love Jalen Green, KPJ should not take a backseat to him.

    just get rid of Wall and Gordon.

    Hopefully Stone is working the phones to get rid of Wall asap. Can't have a disgruntled veteran on a young squad, it's poisonous. Hopefully EGO is gone by the trade deadline. Back to your point I believe 20 and 8 more feasible. I believe our starting backcourt will average 20+ a game.

    He’s not averaging 10 assists.

    Dude, 20 points and 10 assists is historically good. Maybe 17/7 type numbers, that would be a huge year for him.

    Wall will start next to KPJ if he can't be traded.

    I know. I know. But, so is 50 & 10@ any age.. much less at 20 yrs old. He put up some big assist games too. Consider Kevin went for 17 & 6 last year...and that was in choppy minutes/missed games w/ Wall and Oladipo upsetting the cart...He's finally going to get all these minutes at point. Hopefully with a HEALTHY cast. (CW)

    Better question is if he would ever average 20/10 in his whole career.
