My issue with Larkin is, he tested off the charts in the Combine but you don't see all that when he actually plays. He has a lot of Kendall Marshall to his game, although he has a far better jumper.
Honestly, I don't even want Larkin due to the athletic testing. To me that is just something to talk to the general fan base about. I like his ability to pick and choose his spots in terms of shooting and running the offense. He's a bit smaller than I'd like and I'm not sure of his in-between game but if he's around in the mid-20s he would be worth a look. Also, I think he'll do enough on defense not to hamper the team's interior guys by allowing "blow-by's" as often as Ray Felton.

Withey looks ok but I worry about him be possibly being a stiff on the NBA level.
Honestly, I only put Plumlee on the list because he will likely be around there. I much prefer Withy. Both guys have quick enough feet and understand how to get open/get out the way around the basket to be quality offensive garbage men. I prefer Withy because I think he has a bit of Marc Gasol to him defensively. Won't be as effective as Gasol at getting to the spots early but has good enough timing as a shot blocker for the defense to still be good.
