Since Powell is now a starter, let's compare stats projected per 36 minutes.

Powell
15.2 points per game
9.1 total rebounds per game
2.4 assists per game
FT's - .772 percentage
3-point - 29%

Adams
14.9 points per game last season
9.9 rebounds per game
1.3 assists per game
FT% - .500
3-point percentage = 0% ???

Powell makes about 11 million a year.
Adams makes about 25 million a year.

Which do you take? Even if you assume Adams makes up the difference with some defensive metric, how much change is that?

Plus, Powell brings experience within this system. He knows how to switch on Carlisle's defense. We know he's effective on pick and rolls with all our PGs. So experience should be factored in. Now factor in the fact that Adams doesn't finish games and can't be trusted with FTs.

The argument for Adams can't be based on stats. Unless someone has significantly different stats
