i still think he'd be the small move that makes a huge impact. i believe he can start, with Armon backing him up. he would fit in our system, he is quick and has got a great handle, good shooting %'s all over the floor, good vision and distribution, good assist/turnover ratio, big-game experience, and most importantly he's used to being unselfish and trusting his teammates (at UNC, Hansborough, Green, Ellington). that's a huge attribute for a PG to have.
i see this as a move to make next summer, when Carmelo is on the way out and they're looking for new wing players. not sure about the details, i'm sure it would involve us getting rid of Rudy, picking up Andre's team option and using him as an expiring contract, etc. (a team picking up Melo would probably like an expiring contract?)
in my opinion, one of the only weaknesses to Ty Lawson is his height and ability to play D against larger guards. there's not a strong argument to dispute this, except that there are many other similarly-undersized point guards doing well right now. for example; Jameer Nelson, Chris Paul, Raymond Felton, Derek Fisher, Jonny Flynn, Brandon Jennings, Aaron Brooks, Darren Collison, Mike Conley, DJ Augustin are all 6'1" or lower. and Lawson is strong and large at 195lbs, so he wouldn't get bumped off the ball by those guys.
anybody else like this prospect?
