Pretty much the same as last year. If guys like Hughes can step up and stay healthy, and knock down shots, maybe his APG will go up. I don't think his numbers will be a major difference, I'm guessing about 28 PPG, 8 APG, 7 RPG, a steal, and a block.
Think his stats will go down a little since Hughes seems to take over the ballhandling a bit much at times, hoping he will improve his shooting and defence instead, so something like 28/7/6/2/1 on 50%FG, 38% 3's and 80%FT.
Anyway regardless of stats it will hopefully be enough for a top 4 seed and at least the 2nd round of the playoffs. Don't think we have the pieces to be a true contender yet unless Larry Hughes, Damon Jones and Donyell Marshall all suddenly live up to expectations unlike last year + our rookies put in solid minutes.
