I actually think Reke is better than Iguodala. I've thought Iggy was overrated for yearssss. For his hype and value, his production normally falls far short.
Brandon Jennings I would think is better than Reke too. I'm not a BJ fan by any means, but I didn't see anything from Reke last season that suggested he was better than Any of those guys.
JR Smith > Reke as well. Forgot to throw him in that bunch.
Bottom line, if Reke is getting paid that much I wouldn't be surprised to see all of these guys look to get deals in that ball park.
Wait. So OJ Mayo is better than both Tyreke Evans and Andre Iguodala? I wouldn't want to pay that Evans contract, but Evans is absolutely the more valuable player. Mayo has some mental hurdles he needs to overcome.
But BJ, Mayo, Reke, and JR are not even close to Iggy. Iggy can't shoot, but he can do pretty much everything else, and he's a better defender than each of those guys put together.
