Afflalo and JR and two very different players, Arron doesnt need the ball in his hands, he's mostly a guy who's very good at cutting around screens for the mid-range jumper, or just waiting at the line for a 3.
So not a chucker (if he gets the ball it's because he's open) and not a ball hog.
Also a better defender.
I'd pick Afflalo over JR any day of the year actually
Can handle the ball well however, and he fits the triangle.
Love the pickup.
