Jonny Flynn

This time last year, I claimed that Jonny Flynn was not much better than Ty Lawson. After one season, here's how they stack up:

Flynn: 28.9 mpg, 13.5 ppg, 4.4 apg, 2.4 rpg, 1.0 spg, 2.9 topg, 41% shooting, 38% 3PT, .511% TS, 13.0 PER

Lawson: 20.2 mpg, 8.3 ppg, 3.1 apg, 1.9 rpg, 0.7 spg, 1.3 topg, 51% shooting, 41% 3PT, .600% TS, 16.5 PER

So I had a point.

There are other factors, of course. Lawson was playing for a good team; Flynn had Pavlovic and Wilkins play over 2,400 minutes alongside him. Lawson is a year and a half older; Flynn is only 21 and had to try and run an offense that didn't really exist with a coach who wanted to install a triangle offense, but only for a while. These things are all true. But if and when they stop being true, and there's still not much separation between them, I'm claiming that. It's already far more accurate than my belief that Wayne Ellington could be the next Voshon Lenard. Whoops.

Ty Lawson
PG, 5’11, 195lbs, 29 years old, 8 years of experience

On the court, Lawson had a good bounce-back season, not reaching the heights of his Nuggets days but having some big scoring nights, shooting a .551% true shooting percentage and putting up a near 2.5:1 ratio. He even tried hard on defence, mostly. However, off the court, the arrest warrant for suspected violation of probation by failing three alcohol tests flared its head towards the end of the season, which rather took the shine off of it. Lawson showed this season that there is still talent in the tank, so here’s hoping that’s the storyline going forward.

Player Plan: Expiring minimum salary contract. Although he had a decent bounce-back season, and although Fox and Mason could use a veteran hand at the point guard position, Collison is the better player and should be the priority.
