I just don't like his style of play for this roster. Obviously I love the Defense, but offensively (at his best) he'd just be a decent slasher/playmaker. Which isn't the worst thing in the world, but I really like the idea of having a shooter at PG.
It's borderline mandatory when it comes to winning now in the modern NBA.
So with that said, if he really is set to break out this year, I look forward to seeing what we can add to this roster in a trade for him.
This is what I've been saying.
If Kris Dunn was a superstar, we'd build the team around him.
If Kris Dunn was an All-Star, we'd keep that in mind when acquiring players and designing plays for him.
If Kris Dunn was a very solid NBA starter, we'd try to create an environment where he'd thrive along with the rest of the starters.
Dunn is none of those things. He simply isn't in a position where his style of play should in any way affect the team. He needs to change, not the team. So far he hasn't showed that ability.
Dunn isn't worth all this hand-wringing. It's not very problematic to find people who can move the ball at the PG spot, defend reasonably well and hit open shots. That's all we need.
In fact, we have several people like that currently on the roster. Just let them play and the problem is solved.
