Zach seems to be back on track. He's posting career highs in OBPM, DBPM, BPM, and WS/48, while approaching last year's PER and TS% numbers. Averaging 32/4/3/2 on .500/.571/.806 splits in his last 5. Still has the same TO/random bonehead moments but with a better coach he could be an elite 2nd offensive option on a contender.
If Lauri gets going this team can threaten for the playoffs and the future looks less bleak.
Do you really believe Zach can get career high in those advanced stats for the whole year? Even if he did, he is such a negative player it would not impress me one bit but it is very likely he reverts back since he was posting careers highs in start of the season and went rock bottom until past few game.
Zach's ability to make difficult shots is why you put him on a 6th man role, aka Lou Williams. Trying to feature him as a centerpiece all star guard primary ball handler will just result in another failed season since hes being asked to do too much for his skill/abilities.
Wiggins making all-NBA/ becoming perennial star is more likely than Lavine playing Klay Thompson on 2nd round playoff team.
Wiggins success is all sustainable since MJ level athleticism allows him to avg more blocks/rebounds/ fts and nothing is really forced.
You can argue Zach is an all star by putting up x points, but trade value ends the discussion right now.
My question is why is no one offering a lottery pick despite locked up for multiple years while Bogdan an impending RFA posting inferior stats will bring multiple good assets?
