I'd rather see Tomas, Huff, Morsell, Clark and then even Key taking a


larger 3pt attempt share than Diakite, in that order. Should he pass up good, in-rhythm looks as you mentioned he needs to take? No, not entirely. He'll have to keep defenses honest. I don't think we should frame this as Diakite being any kind of substantial shot attempt replacement from the guys we've lost. We have much better options for that skill. I can't see Diakite shooting much more than 34% or so on any sort of meaningful sample size, and I'd be happy with that if his attempts are limited. He's a becoming great inside player, though.

It's not just about making sure the team is making efficient 3pt choices but also making sure that Diakite isn't wasting his own potential as a big time college inside scorer by taking bad attempts. He improved SO much in that this regard between last year and the year before.
