What Westbrook's shooting / scoring efficiency will be in playoffs will be key. for career it is 6 seasons of below league average and 4 seasons of barely league average TS%. In playoffs he has always been below avg on TS% and aboveavg on eFg% only in his first playoffs against Fisher.

I wonder how much they guaranteed butler his minutes. Will see in playoffs. I think they made some level of guarantee. They sure seem like they did with Fisher.

Ibaka still positive but very modestly, less than plus one.

R Williams was -3 on adjusted plus minus last season.
Ibaka's rating is 6th lowest in league for someone paid as much or more than him.

@AndreBroberson Somebody ought to do the Collison cartwheel dunk in a game. Did anyone ever do it in the NBA dunk contest? Collison did it a college all-star dunk contest.

@FF_pickups @Crow Brooks will now have to pick and choose between 12 guys to play. Will you choose wisely and game to game and within game wisely?
@FF_pickups @Crow Usage is kinda of high for a below average shooter /scorer at almost 24%. Hope it will decline to about 18%.
@FF_pickups @Crow Yes. Career worst TS%, nearly so on offensive rating and FT rate and way worst on winshares per 48 minutes which includes team defense. But career best on def reb. rate, block rate.
Did presti / Brooks essentially promise Butler a certain level of minutes? I think they probably went far enough to reassure him it wouldn't be short. I dunno he he wanted / got 24 minutes per game like he had previously or 20, 15 or 10 but I think they gave him some guidance. Time will time tell what level it was.
Unlikely they would do it but the Suns have cap room to claim Butler from waiver wire if they wanted him or if they just wanted to keep him from Thunder.
By boxscore stats Granger and Butler are fairly close in value with Butler ahead but by adjusted plus minus Granger is clearly better this season and over recent years.
Lamb played just 11 minutes last few games. He might stay down there more often in future with Butler added.
But Presti was given no indication he relies on that.
1 week, 4 days ago on What does adding Caron Butler mean?
Butler was near -3 on RAPM estimate. Most of the negative on defense.
There is talk about fan panic of course but there also seemed like substantial concrn on face of clay Bennett in previous losses. I wonder if ownership has increased its level of contact and input with Presti. May not yet but it could influence the waived guy pursuit.

Fish might get interest in east or maybe dallas
Yes though the method tries hard to adjust for it and he is playing less with than previously.
Def. Specialists then to be cheaper per pt of impact than off. Players but def. Bugs are more expensive than def. Perimeter guys.
RW rose thru yrs to become a plus 4-5 on rapm last season. This season he been about plus 2 on estimate. It could stay there or go up or down. kd's estimate is down a lot too. I am not sure what to conclude but it is a concern in the face of many good teams and stars.
played mostly SF in Milwaukee. would he get more than 10-15 minutes a game with Thunder? I think that is debatable.
