Lecque just seems to have a sense for the game - its been against inferior competition and he's got a lot of work ahead, but he does make plays that show that he's got a good basketball IQ.
He's a good gamble. See how he evolves after a year or two in the developmental league.
So far looks like a good gamble by Jones
It's not a gamble at all. Lecque is making minimum money and didn't even cost a draft pick. It's really a no-brainer. It is one of the few moves this front office has made that hints at even a semblance of understanding the concept of value.
He gave an undrafted rookie who didn’t play in college a two year guaranteed (4 year) deal which likely brings an end to Elie Okobos time in Phoenix.

Yes, it is a gamble. Not high risk, but he is certainly betting on this kid.
Okobo is owed more guaranteed money than Lecque. He basically swapped him for nothing if he wants to trade away Elie. It wasn't risky at all, but it was a good move and he certainly could have said "we have enough PGs now so no need to sign someone else."
