What about Nick Young?
We are in desperate need for a scorer and that is what the kid does, SCORE! He is a Restricted Free agent and should come cheaper than some of the other names. Washington is going to try and match what ever he is offered though.
Stats this year.
He is 14th in the league in scoring b4 Allen, Richardson, Parker, Derozan, and Matthews. 17.7 ppg
His FG% is .443 which is better than Rose, Westbrook and Kevin Martin. Ginobili shoots a .429
Above avg with the ball in his hands. Now for the bad:
Dude does not pass the ball. In 62 games this year he is avg 1.2 asts, in between Shannon Brown and Deshawn Stevenson who both also played in about the same number of games. Our own Morrow who is pretty much a spot up shooter is avg 1.1 ast.
Young is basically the reincarnation of Rip Hamilton. Same size and build and ability to score. Not gonna give you much else on the floor but scoring,but he can hit that mid range off the dribble which is a very important thing to have. Only young is a better finisher and has a better handle.
Oh and dude has handles!!!
If he was on the Nets he would become the #1 scoring option followed by Lopez and Deron. A scorer like that would then let you add a SF like Ak47 that is just there to get boards help on defense and finish at the rim.
