This is part two of a 2 part series asking the question"Do we really need a new point gaurd?"
The trade deadline has passed, but yet people still keep on talking about wanting a new PG. Why? Because over the the last month and a half or so, we have forgotten about how good Mo Williams was before his injury.
Mo's stats are likely better, but, stats don't always tell the whole story. On the other hand we could get someone who is younger, and has more potential to grow with the team. Lets look at some players who I think we should go after, vs Mo's stats all together.
First we need to assess who everyone likes. Obviously we have enough room for three max contracts when this season ends. So we can try to go for anybody hard.
I really would like the Jazz to go hard after: 1.Brandon Jennings 2. Jeff Teague
Jeff Teague vs Mo Williams
As you see above when they both play 36 minutes Jeff averages more points, steals, free throws, and a better field goal percent. This would allow us to run a much less point guard oriented offense. Teague also shoots more shots per game within five feet of the hoop, and with the big men, we could easily just dump a pass off right then and there. Teague seems like the perfect point guard for this franchise. And to answer my question.
Yes if we can grab Teague or Jennings in the Off-Season than we would be better off with them than Mo, but if we can't grab one of them, than, we could easily grow with Mo at the Point.
