Drummond is probably most likely just because we are so thin at center he is going to be playing big minutes.

If rose and reggie split time at pg at 24 mph each neither is likely but if they play together some or if one goes down with an injury I could see it happening. Kennard would be my choice because he is the most efficient scorer of the bunch its just a matter of whether or not he gets enough shots up and if his defense is good enough to keep him playing big minutes. Brown and Snell could prevent kennard from getting 30+ mpg.

I think Reggie will play hard for his next contract. The guy has been hurt 2 years in a row then had a so so season, he is gonna be out there trying to prove something.

It could go both ways, he could start chucking for his new contract and put us firmly in the "struggle" category for trying to make the playoffs. His brand of basketball never was team friendly, I don't want him to have the ball so much in his hands.

i could honestly see all four of drummond, reggie, rose and kennard averaging about 15 PPG.

if i was a betting man i'd say drummond, but rose is more capable of putting up points. drummond's minutes/usage is probably locked in to get about 16-18 PPG like he did last season whereas rose's minutes/usage are more of a question mark at this point.

gun to my head the top 5 scorers on the team, in order, are blake, drummond, rose, reggie, kennard.

In terms of average? Probably Drummond, just because I think Rose eats into Reggie's playing time and shots. It could be Reggie or Rose if the other gets injured though. Otherwise I think they split time and touches too evenly.

In terms of total points, it's a crap shoot based on who's healthy even moreso than average is. I think it's probably Drummond in that regard since odds are neither Reggie nor Rose gives us as many games as Drummond. If the injury bug bites Griffin harder this year then he could be our number 2 scorer in terms of total points.
