You can phrase it however you like, he's playing 20 minutes a night in a top 4 role on the top team in the conference (top 10 in GA/G in the league) and thriving. He has not been anything close to a "fringe 5/6" since '10-'11.
The "tools" of Tampa's top 4 have not been yielding terribly impressive results.
I'm glad you wouldn't take him in this deal, because I certainly wouldn't offer him.
