3 times missed FG
2 times turned it over
1 times handed out an assist (a 2pt shot)
1 time hit a FG
That's four points produced in seven possessions. That's 0.57 points per possession. Only Clark and DJO are worse. By comparison, the team average is 1.14 points per possession. So, he's 1/2 as productive as the average Laker.
His Individual Efficiency Ratings:
Position Rating: 37.0
I don't think stats are a good way to analyze a guy whose played a total of 7 possessions in garbage time...
He has a decent touch, he can finish around the rim, and more importantly, he's another 7 foot body that can give you 6 fouls. I'm not proposing that we make him a rotation player, all I'm saying is that he provides us with enough insurance that Hill becomes expendable (assuming that we're able to find success with these current rotations that don't really even utilize Hill).
If D'antoni sticks to what he's doing right now, it looks like this is going to be our rotation when everyone's healthy. These rotations would look much more balanced with a legitimate second string SF instead of having an over-qualified third string PF who we can't find minutes for.
