And we don't necessarily like Potter all that much either. Look how identical their stats are. He's high on a lot of fans' naughty lists. So why on earth would we give up a great energy player in Jones who actually brings it every night for Potter v2.0?
You should note last season Potter face a lot tougher competition then Weber. Weber is not the answer for a team the relies on their D for toughness, so comparing the stats between the 2 doesn't make a lot of sense.
