Potential Ben Gordon Replacement?

The way things look right now, Ben Gordon will not be a Chicago Bull next year. I'm not saying it won't happen; it just doesn't look very likely. With that said, it's time to start thinking about a replacement for BG. What does Ben bring to the table? Scoring, scoring and some more scoring. There's nobody on the market this offseason that can fill it up like Ben, but there is someone that can be Ben Gordon-lite.

I'm talking about Von Wafer. Wafer and Ben have very similar statistical profiles, shooting almost identical percentages from the field and from three point land. Ben has the edge at the stripe, while Wafer is slightly better in the thievery department. Physically, Ben is short and powerful and Wafer has significantly more height and is a bit smoother moving with and without the ball.

What I like about Wafer is that he offers scoring off the bench and can play alongside Derrick Rose as he doesn't dominate possessions and isn't a high-profile player like Ben is, making it easier for Rose to have full control of the offense. Wafer would be a great kick-out option for Rose and is seemingly a perfect fit for the style of basketball that VDN wants to play.

What do y'all think about bringing in Mr. Wafer?
