EARL CLARK or THADDEUS YOUNG ros ?

11 posts in this topic

here's a projection :

Young is averaging 14.9 ppg 7.4 rpg 1.7 apg 1.6 spg 0.9 bpg

he's shooting 51% FG , 57% FT and 20% 3pts ( barely 0.1 a game ).

Earl Clark on the other hand is averaging : 8.1 ppg - 6.3 rpg - 1.1 apg - 0.6 spg and 0.7 bpg

he's shooting 47% FG . 67% FT and 40% 3pts ( with 0.8 made a game ).

i think it's a bit obvious that Young wins big time, but is it worth holding him with a 2-3 weeks injury?

You forgot about one detail called playing time. Clark is averaging 23 mins, while Young is getting 35 mins per game. Therefore I wouldn't call that a projection, taking into account that Clark's PT went up by more than 50% over the last several games and Gasol is nowhere near returning to hamper his PT.

Still Young's value is higher if potential owner could swallow benching him for about 2 weeks from now.

and what about Bynum's return ?

i can handle benching him, it's fine for the next couple weeks.

as for the projection, ur right i should have added the MPG , but as u know jamison has been pretty good lately , so i'm not sure if D'antoni will keep on playing Clark 30+ mins.

I'm pretty confident Clark's recent "slump" (if I ever saw one) was mostly due to the his foot injury, which may still bother him - he'll get almost a week off and even if he played poorly in the last couple of games he's still one of D'Antoni's favourite players. Jamison is too inconsistent to eat much of his playing time.

As for Bynum it's the same story as with DRose - nobody actually can predict right now when either of them will be back into action. :S
