In this year’s Wisdom of Crowds series, our assignment is to figure out how Coach Wright will replace 40% of last season’s offense produced by departed players Scottie Reynolds, Reggie Redding, and Taylor King.

Use the voting buttons, below, to predict the points per game you think Mo will score this year and the comment section to explain your thinking. To help you come up with your prediction, we have provided his stats from last season and a "third party expert" player assessment, below.
