His season averages of 1.5 assists, 0.7 steals and 0.2 blocks don't make him a great option.

He already looked to be in line for a significant boost in playing time since he was likely going to start at shooting guard with his new team after being buried on the Nuggets' depth chart. To further tilt the scales in his favor, Karl-Anthony Towns (wrist) is expected to miss multiple games coming out of the All-Star break.
