Jonny Flynn - Although he was an Australian league All-Star last season, averaging 17.4 points and 5.9 assists per game, Flynn barely played in summer league, didn't catch on for training camp, and although he did catch on in China with the Sichuan Blue Whales, he was released without playing a game due to injury. His uphill battle continues.

Jonny Flynn

Flynn's career has been on a scarily big downslide, and he fell out of the NBA as soon as his rookie contract ended. He spent last year in Australia, where he was an All-Star and averaged 17.4 points and 5.9 assists per game, but you'd expect that. Regrettably, you'd also somewhat expect the 4.1 turnovers. Flynn was never entirely under control, but his hip problem has robbed him of the explosion, and it's not just stopped him improving - it's also made him noticeably worse. Flynn needs to recover and reinvent himself, and, whichever it is, he needs to prove it against better quality opposition than the NBL.

Jonny Flynn

This time last year, I claimed that Jonny Flynn was not much better than Ty Lawson. After one season, here's how they stack up:

Flynn: 28.9 mpg, 13.5 ppg, 4.4 apg, 2.4 rpg, 1.0 spg, 2.9 topg, 41% shooting, 38% 3PT, .511% TS, 13.0 PER

Lawson: 20.2 mpg, 8.3 ppg, 3.1 apg, 1.9 rpg, 0.7 spg, 1.3 topg, 51% shooting, 41% 3PT, .600% TS, 16.5 PER

So I had a point.

There are other factors, of course. Lawson was playing for a good team; Flynn had Pavlovic and Wilkins play over 2,400 minutes alongside him. Lawson is a year and a half older; Flynn is only 21 and had to try and run an offense that didn't really exist with a coach who wanted to install a triangle offense, but only for a while. These things are all true. But if and when they stop being true, and there's still not much separation between them, I'm claiming that. It's already far more accurate than my belief that Wayne Ellington could be the next Voshon Lenard. Whoops.
