The threat of the best three point shooter in the league undoubtedly opens the lane for Tony. And open lane for Tony fuels the entire Spurs offense. First to sixth is a loss as month. Bonner contributes to more than a win a month. The second round pick you MAY get for him won't contribute as much.
He is what he is. A valuable piece on a team that needs outside shooting to thrive. Less valuable when opposing teams make a concerted effort to stop him.
Bottom line, he shrivels up and gets intimidated by the moment when the stakes are the highest.
