Firstly I'll like to say that DJ is a brilliant Pick and Roll PG. In his Texan college days, a lot of looks he could create through the P&R. TT will be perfect to supplement DJ in the P&R situation, with TT rolling to the basket and DJ with the dish, TT then has the opportunity to dunk it in his opponents face, lay it up, dish it off or pull up for the mid range jumper. I think if we can have DJ and TT constantly doing the P&R, things will really open up for the Bobcats. He's not Steve Nash, nor is TT Amare but I think that if they're able to develop that synergy and chemistry, good things will happen.
Secondly, I'm all for DJ also camping the 3 point line. He's a brilliant shooter. He can slash, but I would prefer for him to only do so when there's a high chance that he'll make the shot or go to the free throw line.
Thirdly, DJ on the floor helps spread the floor. Even though he was in a shooting slump this past year, he's still deadly from 3. This will help open up the floor for Cpt. Jack and Crash when slashing as they have to guard DJ. If his PG sags off him, dish it off to DJ and he can take, and more times than not knock down the shot.
Fourthly, if DJ can have the chemistry Crash and Rayray did in the open court when on the fast break, good things will happen. DJ on the floor with guys like Hendo, UPS, TT, Crash is a very fast lineup and should be willing to shift it into high gear. Best thing is that DJ is brilliant at moving at top speed. His top speed isn't anything amazing, but he can move and can dribble with great handles weaving through opponents at full speed. Fast break should really help DJ as seen past two years, one notable outcome being the behind the head pass to Crash for the alley, which was sweet.
In regards to defense. Defense, he's continued to get better. He's gotten bigger and bigger as he's matured in age, and he's not so much a stick as he use to be. He certainly has added some strength and bulk to his frame, which can only help him, and help us. He does work hard at his defense, and he's at least an average perimeter defender, if not better. He's good at not taking gambles on passes and he works hard on defense.
Finally, he can pass the ball. If he sees a teammate open, he can get that guy the ball.
I think that DJ really wants his starting position, and if he can build from his first two seasons (all of which is valuable experience) then he can only go up. He's apparently been working hard on his game and building up more core strength.
There is a lot of doubt about DJ, but I'm surprisingly optimistic. He has all the tools to be a solid, if unspectacular point guard, but I'm sure he can be at worst servicable.
