John Hollinger looks at 15 sleepers, and one King makes the cut.
Now that the Kings have all their players back he may see his minutes cut, but if the much-discussed trades of Bibby and/or Artest happen, it won't be for long. While Garcia doesn't have the upside of some other players on this list because he's already 26, his shooting, defense and ballhandling make him a strong complementary player.
I'll offer this:
Player Year Age Pts Reb Ast Stl TO FG%/3P/FT PER
Christie 96-97 26 13.5 5.0 3.6 2.3 2.3 42/38/78 15.1
Garcia 07-08 26 16.8 4.7 2.2 1.5 2.2 45/40/80 15.1
Doug Christie at age 26 and Garcia at age 26 are really similar. Garcia's a more frequent scorer and a better shooter; Christie (even pre-Kings) was a good passer and ballhawk. But yeah, those are two similar guys. (I should note John Salmons is the long-lost triplet.)
