I think Bargs was built to play MDA ball tbh. Good range for a big man, and that is what helped make the Suns succesful.
As for Jose he isn't one of the best PG's in the NBA, but he is above average imo. Good shooter, good passer, pretty good Steve Nash replacement when he goes to the bench. He's not the type to go out and lead the team in scoring, but he can nail a wide open jumper to say the least.
