No downside?

He's a cold shooting streak away from initiating a losing streak that drops out of the upper half of the league. He already doesn't defend or rebound for someone his size. I stole this from Roxy Cottin on USCHoops.com. It highlights Bennie's streakiness:

"Bennie's offensive performances through his 3 injured-plagued seasons can be grouped into two categories -- his typical play, and two hot streaks during each of the last two seasons. The two hot period came during the final 10 games of last season and the 9 game stretch after he returned from his initial injury this season. So there are 19 of those games. And there are 56 other games.

Time Period MP FG FGA FG% 2P 2PA 2P% 3P 3PA 3P% FT FTA FT% ORB DRB TRB AST STL BLK TOV PTS
Hot 19 Games 29.8 5.5 11.8 46.2% 2.6 5.1 51.0% 2.9 6.8 42.6% 3.1 3.6 84.1% 1.5 3.9 5.5 1.7 0.5 0.4 1.7 16.9
56 Other Games 25.0 3.8 9.7 38.8% 2.0 4.3 46.3% 1.8 5.3 32.8% 2.5 3.3 76.4% 1.6 3.8 5.4 1.4 0.3 0.8 1.3 11.7

Obviously, we need hot Bennie next season. The different in true shooting percentage between the two is stark. Hot Bennie: 62.9% TS% Other Bennie: 52.9% TS%"
