But that sounds like a good 6th man off the bench. Sounds almost like the guy on the Spurs team that many people were drooling over (Danny Green). Not saying he's as deadly a 3point shooter as Green but eventually could be somewhat similar. IMO, both Hendo and Taylor are role player and better 6th man off the bench. I just have no problem replacing Hendo with Taylor. There's little to lose. It's not like we're trying to replace Harden.
Yeah Taylor will be really good one day. The thing about Hendo is that we don't know exactly what he is capable of right now. From what we've seen he'd be a good 6th man off the bench, but in the 2nd half of last season he showed that he is capable of being an 18-20 ppg scorer on good efficiency. I'd love to sign him for 4 years and 28 million or so, and if he averages 18+ ppg for us then gg. If not, then we have a top notch 6th man. The plan with Hendo is a little fuzzy right now since we'd all like to get Wiggins to play SG for us, but either way I want to keep our talent, and if Hendo resigns on a reasonable contract then we absolutely should get him. Probably the main reason why I'd prefer him over someone like Mayo is because for one, Hendo is definitely the better all around player... stats show it, and the eye test shows it. Mayo is capable of filling it up from 3, but he is strictly a spot up shooter. He can occasionally create off the dribble, but it's not his game, and not something that he is really comfortable doing. Hendo on the other hand provides scoring (creating his own offense via ISO, PnR, and Post), and defense. The main thing Hendo needs to work on is his spot up shooting, because playing with a guard like Kemba can get you a couple of easy threes a game and if he can start really knocking them down then that would help out the offense a good bit.
