Depends, I think his assists could go down, depending on how often he's off ball, could go down to 4.5 or such. I think that's a fine bet.
I'd honestly be fine with 25/5/5 in all honesty.
We need to get someone that's gonna ensure that Kobe can play off ball and from the block and mid while they can set up the offense and score.
Hence forth why a lot of people want Exum if the Lakers can't draft Wiggins. Marshall is a lock for next year for the most part and can run the bench unit to perfection, but we need a point that's capable of scoring.
I think that the Lakers if they lose out on Wiggins will go after Exum, if they draft Wiggins however they will likely get Lowry, or they could buy a second draft pick and draft Payton with Wiggins and look to bring in another big. But as WCS is injured at the moment and it being an achillies sprain they may be skeptical. So who knows.
What I do know is that if we truly want to extend Kobe's career, an upgrade at the point guard is a must, let Farmar go, move Marshall to the bench, get somebody that can score and pass for that starting unit and you're fine on THAT front. Then all we need to do is address the interior defensive one.
