Well, Lonzo is up to 15 PER for the season, and sustained a higher level of play now to raise it up there. He started out at 12. Hurt, but also probably improving.
This is a dying argument but people need to pay attention to how hard this guy is working and how his game is improving. He quite literally rebuilt his shot from scratch.
Basically no one does that once they’ve reached the bigs. He’s going to keep getting better and better.
He’s only 23 as well. 4-5 years from his best years. I’d give him the max. People give up on young guys too quickly in this era even if they have clear talent - and of course a lot of people hate on the Ball family, which I think is soooo 2017.
If the Bulls plan on being a developmental team he might be the right guy. Seems AK knows who he wants to take a shot on and who he doesn’t Gaff,WCJ,Hutch.
