True. But he is Vones's replacement (30 mpg). If he can't finish at the rim as the starting guard then his minutes will be divided amongst several of those players.
we are going to play a bunch of people at guard, his minutes will absolutely be divided among several players, and there is no guarantee that he starts.

According to the shot selection chart, it sounds like he could not finish around the rim(33% inside 5 ').

That sucks. We dribbble drive alot off those
ball handoffs in out half court sets.

He needs to be able to finish thru contact.
What? That chart shows he finishes 50% within 5'. There's one spot at the top of the key where he was 35% with a low volume of shots.

I don't know where DL got the % from but the shot chart you posted suggests that he isn't efficient at finishing around the rim.

According to the key blue areas are areas of low efficiency.

50% at the rim isn't great but it's a world away from 35%.

Yet according to that chart, shooting 35% from that zone is more efficient than 50% in the circle. I'm not sure about that rating system.
It's accurate so far as it goes. 50% at the rim is pretty close to a baseline number - those shots should be highly efficient since they're taken so close to the basket. The 35% is from a few feet away in floater range, which is generally quite difficult to score from since presumably there's at least one defender (probably a tall one) between you and the basket. 35% on shots from that area is actually not bad measured against the average player, although obviously not excellent. It should be a shot of last resort most of the time for most players though, so no big deal. Besides, his overall true shooting percentage is 53.9%. I expect he'll do fine.
