I think we need to keep them both. If anything, Terry is the odd guard out in a trade.
I know we're likely trying to package some of our assets to make an upgrade. We have some redundant players.Is the consensus here that Avery Bradley is better than Courtney Lee? It's interesting, because if you weren't actually watching the games and just looking at stats, you'd probably assume Lee is superior. Certainly Lee has a better track record. 4 years of quality college ball followed by 4 years of quality pro ball. While Bradley has an overrated high school career, subpar freshman college season, a dreadful rookie NBA season and a phenomenal 15 game stretch in 2012 to make up his resume. But even this month... Lee - 7.6 points, 1.8 rebounds, 1.7 assists, 1.3 steals, 52% shooting, 38% from three and 80% from the line in only 17.7 minutes.. VS Bradley - 8.1 points, 1.5 rebounds, 1.3 assists, 1.3 steals, 41% shooting, 29% from three and 25% from the line in 23.5 minutesI said before the season that Lee was our best all around shooting guard... Bradley arguably having a slight edge on him defensively and the redundant Terry/Barbosa having a slight edge offensively... but I also gave bonus points to Lee for being 3 inches and 20 pounds bigger than both Bradley and Terry.Thoughts on this subject?
You simply can't judge Bradley by the stats. Lee didn't start playing a lot better until Bradley came back, for one thing.But I don't think it's a stretch to say that the stats don't do Bradley justice. In terms of value, I don't think it's close at all between Bradley and Lee, not least of all because Bradley is on a cheaper contract, is only 22, and still has plenty of upside.
