I don't believe he leads the Pacers in assists anymore, but he is still very close to leading the Pacers in rebounds and assists. The other two players leading their teams in those categories...Lebron and Noah. I will say Lance turns the ball over too much, but seems like a great fit otherwise.
Both Trevor Ariza and Jodie Meeks are hitting above 40% from the 3pt line this year, both averaging 15 pts/game and work hard on defense.
Courtney Lee is not as productive but shoots a pretty good 48.4% from the field, 36% from the 3pt line.
Nick Young can create his own shot, ave 17 pts/game but is not as good in defense.
But hey, Rose is the big key here, even if they get Carmelo, if Rose can't play atleast 90% of what he used to be, then it's not gonna matter IMO.
