Praise for Will Cherry

Jonathan Reed really, really likes Will Cherry talents at the point.

What's interesting and promising is that Cherry's shooting statistics improved as the season went along:

* 44% shooting overall versus 50% in league play
* 37% shooting from long distance versus 41% in league play
* 78% free throw shooting versus 83% in league play

However, his assist-to-turnover ratio does need upgrading -- 105/90 overall, 50/43 in league play.

It's worth noting that Cherry will be transitioning from being his team's leading scorer to probably the fourth or fifth if he becomes a pro starter a la Lillard. He won't need to put the ball in the basket often, just consistently when he shoots.
