Are we really arguing that 7 points per game is not an upgrade?
Also difficulty and increase in ppg do not scale linearly. It is much harder to go from 7 ppg to 14 ppg, than it is to go from 24.7 ppg to 31.3 ppg.
Don't forget the usage and FGA
Usage and FGA don't scale linearly. Semi is a 4.6 ppg scorer on 3.9 FGA per game. That doesn't mean he will become a 23 ppg scorer if you give him 20 FGA per game. He will be taking harder shots.
Brown is close to a 50% shooter with a pretty high usage. It's perfectly reasonable to think if Brown got 4 more FGA per game his average would be 4-5 points higher which puts him at 28-29 ppg.
