I've been trying to trade for him to take the gamble. In the end, I agree his stats will go up but his efficiency will go down significantly. If you look at his prior seasons, his worst efficiency was when he was starting. I see this as a partial reflection that he struggles against top tier units (starters). The thing that worries me is that his FG% should take a nosedive. If you look at his prior seasons or when he starts, he shoots no where near the 49% he averaged last year.

I imagine something around 22 pts, 5 reb, 4 ast, 2 threes, 1.5 steals, 2.5 TO's, on 42% FG and 85% FT.
