Most underrated defender in the league and should have been an all NBA defender this past season. Excellent open 3 point shooter, excellent cutter, and defenders 1 through 4 fluidly.
I think it would be more accurate for us to say "above average" very open corner 3PT shooter. Luc was taking about 2 3PA/36, his volume was super low because he can basically only take them when he's wide open. His 39% 3PT based on how open his 3PT shots were is not really that good compared to how well other guys shoot on similarly open 3PT shots. Everything else though is true, really loved the guys defense, I was hoping he would be back, but it is what it is.

I posted in the Clippers forum that just randomly a couple of days ago I was thinking to myself that CP is going to end up getting Houston to bring Luc on. They had a very good connection on cuts, some of CP's best passes were made to a cutting Luc, and Paul was always praising his defense. I'm sad to see him go. Some Clippers fans hated on him because he was thrust into a starting role due to this teams lack of depth, and he could only provide so much on offense and shrunk the floor, but he was such a versatile and solid defensive player. I also don't know if I ever noticed Mbah complain about a call, did you? Guy just went out there and did all the little things, could guard the 1-4, has such great lateral quickness, and last season, he even sort of developed that corner 3PT shot at least marginally.
