I think he would be in a more valuable leadership role though. Sure he's a leader in OKC, but he's not going to miss out on any leadership building by missing 5-15 games with OKC.

All in all its just a different experience to help build his character. Won't hurt his confidence either.

That said if he was indifferent I'd rather he stay in OKC and continue to work on his game against the best competition that he can face.
It all depended on how much time he actually misses. If he goes to the Full camp/tourny i think its like 15 games. If he just goes to the tourny Its like 5 or 6 games.
