Thoughts on Jonny Flynn


It seems that the concensus around here is that Houston is set at the point guard.  And rightfully so with Kyle's last season and Dragic's showing in the latter parts of it.  However, it would be naive to think that both players will be healthy for an entire season.  And yes, Courtney Lee if forced could play the position, but then you're not putting him in the best position to be sucessful.   

There's also been talk that Jonny Flynn is not a good basketball player.  While his stats this past season quanify this, he had a nice rookie season.  Honestly, I don't know a lot about Flynn so I'm not going to act like I do.  But Houston has seen a situation where a lowly PG has come over via trade and the fans responded in a similar way.  That lowly PG is now the franhise's starter.  I know the circumstances are different now, but a change of scenery can do measures in the NBA. 

What's in question here is should he be traded?  And from a roster/team still has needs/already have 2 PGs standpoint, the answer is yes.  In fact, he could be traded as I'm typing this post according to several reports.  But the real question in my opinion is, do we really know what we have here?  My answer to that is no.  He was drafted high, and yes it was by Minnesota, but I'm sure he was high on a lot of teams' draft boards.  Watching the presser, I didn't get the Jared Jeffies/DeMarre Carrol feel like this dude is just here because he has to be.  So what do you guys think?  I'm sure I'm in the minority, but he shouldn't be traded just to be traded.  Go ahead, bash me all you want...
