I would pass on FVV because we'd overpay and because there are alternatives, but if the goal is to go max cat hunting, then FVV on a reasonable contract is not a bad thing, miscast in the short-term as a 1st option or not. We can even deal with him being miscast for a while, if we're confident that we will get the other pieces to come.
However, if you got a point about FVV, let's leave Randle out of this. If you wanted a comparison, it would have been better to compare FVV to Morris, who was miscast as a 1st option, but still was able to play with George and Leonard because of his off-ball gifts. I despise these comparisons with Randle, because it makes it seem like Randle is that level or that type of player, and he's not. Unlike FVV, Randle can't play with stars. I do agree Randle is miscast as a 1st option, but I'd also have to say that Randle is miscast as a 2nd, 3rd and possibly 4th option too.
