No Love for Rodney Stuckey?


I couldn't help but notice that the Pistons 25 year old guard is a restricted free agent, and hasn't gotten much love in Fanposts. Why is that?

Stuckey finished the season in Detroit with an 18.46 PER. At 6-5, he has the length to play both guard spots. An obscene 23.9 percent of his possessions ended in assists, and in 31 mpg he averaged 5.4 free throw attempts at an 86 percent clip.

Stuckey isn't a great shooter. He has a non-existent 3 pointer and his mid range game isn't great either, but he dramatically imrpoved his ability to score at the rack this year, converting 56.1 percent, according to Hoopdata, which is nearly a 7 percentage point improvement.

Stuckey would allow us to move Jordan Farmar to a team with needs at point guard in a weak draft. His lack of perimeter acumen is offset by Morrow and Deron Williams, and his ability to get into the lane, draw fouls, and finish at the rim is something the Nets sorely need. He would provide us with great versatility at the point guard spot, and would be a fine setup man should DW ever get injured. He'll probably cost less than a Jamal Crawford or Marcus Thornton, because he's not an explosive scorer on their level, but he does a lot of other things well. Thoughts?
