Watching him catch fire from 3 is just flat out fun to watch.

Concerns for Buddy would be return of Bogdan (and general wackiness with Kings rotation) and regression in his 3P% (47% at the moment). Can see high-teens scoring and 2.0 3PM with a 45% FG% but minutes will be the key factor.

Buzzkill!!!!  haha, actually I do share your concerns but on the flip side the Kings have a winning record and Buddy has been a big part of that.  Bogdan will get his minutes but hopefully they are more at the expense of Shumpert and Buddy still gets 30+.   But I guess you never know with the Kings.

I mean don't get me wrong I am high on Buddy's prospects this year but there are some looming issues. I'd be happy to hold onto him through the season but it would be a good time to sell if you get someone to believe he's a low 20s scorer at ~50% FG%.

 Completely agree.  Unfortunately I don't think he has built up enough trade value yet to sell high.  Not sure people trust him due to the concerns you mentioned.

I think the return of Bogi is good for Buddy tbh. Should allow him to not have to take on such a bigger role as their secondary handler which should help him get more 3PA. A shooter like him shouldn't be averaging less than 5 3PA a game. The assists will go down but he should see more open looks and he'll still contribute on the boards due to his motor

I agree. And so does the KingsFans forum. 9-cat owners want those turnovers down from 2.7 back in the 1s, and Bogie should be the 2nd ballhandler the team needs. He is a ticking time bomb with the ball when he has to dribble too often.

Never been a high steals kind of player - feel like he'll settle in the 0.5-0.8 stl / game range rather than 1+

 

Actually was at 1.6 for 2nd half of last year i think...so I'm fully expecting over 1 / game for the season.  It will come.
