1.) His per 36 last season
15 points would expect as much as 18 here as he had no role in the Indiana attack
10 rebounds (would likely stay the same)
8 FTAs a game would put the opposing team in a lot of foul trouble considering Jonas is quite good as drawing fouls as well.
2.) Amir would still play starters minutes of between 28 - 35 a game between PF and C, and he plays just as well off the bench as he does as a starter.
3.) Better to let him put the hurt on the other teams starters instead of their bench.
4.) I don't think he can play the 5 effectively which means if he is the backup 4 his minutes would likely shrink to 15 - 20.
5.) If he gets in foul trouble you can always go to Amir. If Amir gets into foul trouble starting, Jonas has to play extended minutes or the raptors have to go small.
I'm not married to this theory yet I am just wondering if anyone else sees value in going this direction?
