No arguing TD's athletic and shooting potential. He doesn't have great handles and isn't the floor general Fred has, he just doesn't have that experience yet. TD is not ready to step in Fred's shoes
I don't get what people see in TD that makes them believe he's the future solution to our starting PG spot. He'll be a good 6th man as a SG/PG, and spot starter, but I hardly see "PG" being his main position.
I don't think anyone believes TD will strictly be the PG....he's more of a combo guard, which FVV is as well. When I say TD is a FVV replacement I'm mostly considering him replacing FVV's minutes at the 2 spot. TD cannot replace a pure PG like Lowry.
I guess the best case scenario is FVV re-signs for a reasonable amount and TD or Powell takes the 2 spot....Powell obviously would take that starting 2 spot since he's been playing almost at an allstar level, and TD could develop off the bench for another 2-3 years. TD and Powell are also likely going to get paid big money so I don't know if it's possible to keep both.
