1) Someone who is a serial over dribbler, especially in one spot.
2) Someone how shoots everytime they touch the ball.
Fields isn't either of those guys. And again, being able to shot is only one of several skills needed for a good offense. Fields has those other skills. The main offensive knock against Fields is that guys can sag off of him which ruins the spacing of the offense. But Fields has skills that counteract that to a degree.
i) Moves well on offense. Yes poor spacing can cripple an offense, but BALL-WATCHING can be just as bad. Fields isn't a ball watcher, he moves well on the offensive end and keeps in motion. It's one thing to tell your players to ignore a player, and it's easy to do when they just stand around in one spot (like our whole team seemed to do last year in Nov. & Dec.). It's a lot harder to completely ignore a player that's in motion. Even if you know he's not a threat to shoot from anywhere outside the restricted area, doesn't mean he can't be a distraction for the defense, that other players can take advantage of.
ii) Good screener. The more you sag off Landry Fields, the more open the guy Landry screens for is going to be.
Again, shooting is terrible and willl probably remain that way, so he shouldn't shoot outside the restricted area. But I do think that he can be a net neutral offensive player, or have only a slightly negative impact on offense. I also think that he's defense makes up enough of that gap that it's worth given him consistent burn. UNLESS and until there are younger players to be developed. For instance if the raps draft a SF than the Rookie can get 10-20 minutes and Fields can get 10-15. But if no Rookie is picked (or is stashed in D-Leauge/overseas) Fields can be productive for up to 20 minutes a game. IMO.
