Do not exaggerate. 3 games, 18.3 MPG, 6.0 PPG, 29% FG, 27% 3P, 2.3 APG, 2.3 REB.
He is better and defend better than all you expected (as usual with all European players) but still has to demonstrate more things.
What is clear is that he has the experience and does not hesitate to shot in the clutch time, but sometimes makes your team lose. And still it is not a pure PG but a combo guard or even a SG.
The tape on him is much, much better than his stats thus far. And you can't quantify his defense with numbers.
He's been excellent running and defending the pick and roll, finding open shooters, and finishing around the basket. I think his shooting #'s will improve with more minutes.
So far he has only been running the pick and roll. I think Adelman wants him to be able to run more of his offense before he fully unleashes him and leaves him out there as the only PG.
