He would look better if anyone (besides DeMar and Rudy) could hit their shots when he gets them the ball.
Obviously I'd like to upgrade and get an even better backup for next year but for the remainder of this "playoff push" I think he will be serviceable.
Telfair was a non-factor in Phoenix too. Unless he has a Jerry'd Bayless-esque resurgance I see him at best being the same guy he's been the last few years of his career. Sure it's better than Lucas but that's not saying much. I don't think any playoff team would want a combo of Telfair/JL3 at backup point. But then again we're not a playoff team anyways so it doesn't matter.
