I get that assisted FG% is your current obsession, but I don't think you're factoring in the overall volume here.
44% of his 2 point attempts are assisted... that still leaves 9 unassisted 2 point FGA per game.
He's also at 9.1 PnR possessions and 2.3 iso possessions per game.
He's a very good, multifaceted scorer. His ability score at a high level both on and off the ball feels like exactly what you want to go with Simmons and Embiid.
That said, if people have the misconception that he's some James Harden level, dominant on ball scorer, and want to give up that kind of package for him... Sure, he's not that guy.
