Tyreke's Ideal Back Court Teammate

With the draft coming, and all this hullabaloo over Evan Turner, I started to think about what type of player would be Tyreke's ideal back court teammate.

His back court mate would have to be a great catch and shooter from long distance.  He would have to be a terrific defender, solidifying our lock down perimeter defense for years to come.  He would have to be an intangibles guy who would play with great energy, enthusiasm, and contagious focus on both sides of the court.  He should also be able to create his own shot when things get hairy, but should not need the ball in his hands in order to be effective.

 

With these thoughts in mind, I came to the conclusion that Tyreke's ideal back court mate would be a young Shane Battier (shocking, I know).  But because Geoff Petrie doesn't have a time machine - that we know of - who are some current players in this mold?

My list of potential puzzle pieces in order of ideal fit:

1. Courtney Lee -- He does everything I described, is a young gun only in his sophomore year, and plays with that wonderful intensity I mentioned.

2. Trevor Ariza -- Is a fantastic defender, an extremely capable catch and shoot player, and has a decent contract.

3. Eric Gordon -- I know this is getting a little too ideal now.  Unquestionably the best player mentioned so far, but he doesn't have a big enough body to defend all those strong guards throughout the league (Kobe, Wade, Iggy, etc.)

 

As you can see, this is a rather short list as I'm having trouble finding the prototypical young Shane Battier type players.  Which is why I want your help!  Who are your choices for an ideal (but realistic) back court mate for our studly Tyreke Evans?
