Somebody please explain to me what makes Kevin Huerter particularly valuable. Is it his 14 points per 40 minutes? Or is it the below average TS% at which he scores that below average number of points?
I don't mean to denigrate the kid. He had a reasonably ok rookie season, & I'm glad for him. He has a chance to be an NBA player.
I'm sure Hawks loyalists will counter with how great he is, because, unsurprisingly, he glows in their eyes. For that matter, our own loyalists are not dissimilar -- no, Brad Beal is not among the top 15 players in the league.
Truth is, this is kind of a useless exchange. We're not planning to trade Beal, & Atlanta probably doesn't have a package that would interest us all that much anyway. That's just not where the team is.
Nor does it help to issue dire warnings: oooh, it's now or never; now is good, later is bad, etc. Come on. Talk about things that might actually happen.
