LBJ, Kawhi, KD, Marion, Brewer, Parsons, Carroll, Batum, T-Harris, Gay, Melo and Pierce were SFs who had better FG% last yr than RJefferson.
Quite a Batum-esque line for Thomas Robinson: 8 points, 7 rebounds, 5 assists and 5 steals.
BTW, how good does Nicolas Batum's 4 years/$46 million look right now?
This feels like Blazers-Batum in 2012. Minn offer sheet was 4/$46M, a very big number, Portland matched. Turned out to be the right call.
Aldridge, Monroe, Batum would be dynamic. Spurs-like. If sign-and-trade for Monroe didn't include Batum.
Talked with Nic Batum on Mon. He said offseason workouts have focused on developing a post game. Considers it part of taking the next step.
