In the NBA, they don’t make point guards like they used to.
Some would argue that they make better ones. To be sure, the evolution of the point guard from distributor to primary scorer has resulted in some exciting players.
Still, a point guard isn’t strictly a scorer. They may be score-first, but teams still need a primary ball-handler who can make quick decisions.
Sometimes, that decision may be to pass to a teammate.
Fred VanVleet of the Toronto Raptors may be the archetypical modern point guard. On the other hand, Kevin Porter Jr. of the Houston Rockets may not be one at all.
If their front office agrees, could they look to bring VanVleet into the fold?
