Ayton actually is a good passer
I think it’s very realistic to see Ayton average 4-5 assists next season... especially with all of the shooting we added (Saric/Cam/Jerome/Kaminsky/Baynes)
Rubio and Booker is a highly ball dominant guard tandem.
Deandre is largely a passer out of the post. Great skill, and one that sometimes is missed as being what separates the great from the Great post players. But he'd have to be getting a LOT of postups to average that many assists given how unlikely he is to be handling the ball out on the perimeter.
Rubio likes the ball but is happy settling teammates up instead of taking shots himself.
We passed on going after a ball dominant scoring guard like DLo for precisely this reason... to get Ayton the ball and increase his responsibility on the offensive end.
