This was also a tough decision as there are 2 obvious choices here in Enes Kanter and Derrick Favors.  I give the edge to Enes as he has a better rebounding rate per minute played.  Either way having both Favors and Kanter is a huge upgrade from Al and Sap.

    Richard Jefferson is very good three point shooter, and you mentioned Trey over him? Also, Kanter and Favors is not a “huge upgrade” over two guys who were averaging 9 and 7 RPG. They’ll probably put up very similar rebound totals.

    • Josh Haslam

      If Kanter and Favors average 10 a game that to me is a big upgrade solely because 4 rebounds a game more usually equates to a few extra wins in close games. Kanter and Favors rebound at a much higher rate than Al or Sap which even for a 9 and 7 rebounder from a starting PF and Center is considerably low compared to league average. As for not mentioning RJ I don’t think he’ll play very much to even be considered in the discussion but yes true he is a good three point shooter when given the minutes.
