We NEED to add a defensive specialist to this roster in the worst way. I say keep buddy b/c his 3pt shooting is elite and Bogi can't say he does anything on that level. This draft we have to look for a perimeter defender we can score but cant guard a grave yard.

okay but if you are going to cite stats.

Assist to turnover ratio
Bogdan. 1.9
Buddy. 1.31

Defensive Field Goal percent
Bogdan. 43.5%. -1.2. ( lower than average)
Buddy. 50.2%. +5.5. (Higher than average)

Effective Field Goal Percentage
Bogdan. 54.1
Buddy. 54.4

yes Buddy is the better rebounder and I want to have both on his team....
Buddy. 7.4%
Bogi. 5.6%
uhh yeah. Didn't I say all these things? They're very similar players statisically, with Buddy being the far superior floor spacer and Bogi is the better defender. Also, you have to take into account that Buddy worked with a 5% higher USG rating so his efficiency gets a boost working with more possessions/shots.

In the context of the team though, if you had to choose one, give me the lights-out floor spacer next to the 2 building block players who are going to make their living getting to the free-throw line and at the rim. Could even had Richaun Holmes in there as a guy in the PnR who gets a lot better with great floor spacing.

Regardless, I think there's room on this team for all 3. The much bigger issue is getting production out of the 3 and 4 spot. Fox, Bogi, Buddy are your shot creators and Holmes is your defensive anchor/rim runner at the 5. Team needs to find better compliments to those 4 than what we ran out there this year.

LOL. Rich.

Stats are something though. And when I post their respective seasons, they're pretty much identical. And you're here telling me that Bogi is way better at this and that because your eyes say so. Why would I believe your eyes when they directly contradict what's statistically happening on the court? How does that make any sense at all?

You're doing the exact same thing in reverse. I posted their basic stat lines from this season and formed an opinion based on that and you disregarded it because it contradicts your own biased conceived notions about a player because of your own eye balls. Not going to apologize for believing stats and math over your eyes.

btw, I've stated this multiple times throughout the years that stats and eye test need to go hand in hand. If something looks wonky in the stat line and it's not showing up on the court, something's off. Same if I'm seeing something on the court, I want to go look at the numbers to back up that assumption. You stating that Bogi protected the ball better than Buddy just isn't reality. And that's the major fault with relying solely on eye test; it's impossible to process and remember all the information that happens in an NBA game, much less thousands of NBA minutes.

Again, I don't care how you judge things or watch the games or who you root for; be whatever kind of fan you want. But on a discussion board about the Kings, I'm going to call out assumptions and takes that aren't true and don't have legs to stand on.
My eye test says Buddy makes the mistakes at key points in the games. Bogi is steadier when it matters. All that said I can't choose between the two, lets keep them both:)

Buddy assist to turnover ratio is significantly worse and his defense field goal percentage is much worse according to the stats I posted. Yes Buddy has a higher 3 point percentage but overall his EFG percentage is about the same. Largely due to Buddy not having a mid-range game.

That said Buddy is an ideal scorer, energy guy off the bench. The question is will he embrace his role? If he will then I keep him even though he is overpaid for the role.

Kings are weak at the wing position. But they are the hardest players to find. That was one reason I hated passing on players like Paschell last year and selling the 2nd round to Portland to be Trent. Nor was it great drafting Jackson over Anunoby. Hopefully the Kings make a better decision this year. A set of wings will likely be available: Vassell, Williams, Bey, Nesmith, McDaniels. Need and BPA may well align. Let’s hope our draft acumen improves.

And your all leaving out the most important part. What do his teammates want?

We've all seen them pointing at him for his errors and "talking" to him.

His nickname with teammates is YaYa, as in his response to accountability is always YaYa.
