He hit 45.4% of 6.6 threes per game last year, 57.7% on WO attempts, 41.7% on 2.5 open attempts, and 40.4% on 2.3 tightly contested attempts in 26.4 minutes per game.
Much more reliable and better shooter than Tim.
I get that there will be a lot of money and not many players to go for so he might get overpaid. I am not sure that we are the ones who has to overpay him, though. I'd rather have KP bomb from the outside and Luka work inside as primary options, then JRich, Maxi and Dorian are good enough as scarecrows on offense and far superior on defense. That leaves Tim the sixth man role. 20 million$ is Fred van Vleet, Malcolm Brogdon money.
Obviously we value JRich's contributions differently.
It is also Jerami Grant, Bertans, Gallo type of money. NBA market isn't really set by the bargains.
We probably value JRich differently, but I was talking about what the market will offer them; JRich is in the Jae Crowder category IMO, those players don't get paid highly.
THJ is a scorer, and those guys get paid better in the NBA
And I don't think THJ is getting 20, I see something around 16-18M. Which is close to 20 than 10M as I said.

As @dirkfansince1998 said before, I think people are taking THJ shooting for granted, but it is essential part of our offense, with or without KP.
