If Harrison could shoot this well over a season, he'd be a very highly paid player. His 38% is on a total of 42 attempts last year though, and he's sub 30% for his career. I don't think anyone believes this percentage is representative of what he could do over the course of the season.
Mokoka's 40% is on 15 total attempts. I have no idea if he's a good three point shooter or not, but the total volume there is low enough that you shouldn't count on it being representative of anything. Others might be able to tell you that he is or is not a good shooter.
In today's NBA players that can't shoot a 3Pointer are being flushed out of the league. The one thing that can compensate is a high 2P%:
Dunn - 54%
Shaq - 50%
Mokoka - 46%
Well there is certainly a lot more than just eFG% and TS%. Ability to create, pass, handle, limit turnovers, etc, I'd say Dunn is probably best in most of those categories you didn't name over a high volume of attempts and Mokoka is probably worst. Mokoka isn't a ball handling guard like Harrison and Dunn are to an extent. Dunn clearly being the best in those categories.
The last comparison is their performance as perimeter defenders, and IMO the difference is not enough to decide between the three.
Think Dunn is the best here, Shaq isn't so far off Dunn, and Mokoka isn't in the picture. Dunn is actually big defensive positive and very disruptive. Harrison is similar, but harder to say if he could scale to more minutes. Mokoka isn't a net positive defensively yet, though obviously very young in his career.
So, for the money that you would have to pay each player, which one would you chose?
IMO Dunn comes in at a distant 3rd.
The money isn't really relevant except for profits, because none of the guys will prevent other signings by being her or not being here since they'll all be bird rights players. There might be reasons to take any of them. Dunn is the most proven and most expensive. Harrison looks like a potentially similar player to Dunn if given the same opportunity and will cost much less. Mokoka is a guy who has a better than 50/50 chance of not even being an NBA caliber player and is in a totally different bucket.
I'm not sure I'd want Mokoka even on the roster. Harrison is a guy I'd definitely keep if he's cheap (potentially vet min). Dunn is a guy I might keep if failed to pick up someone better in the off-season, but would probably let walk.
