Evan Rodrigues and the one season wonders

But even in his best season to that point in 2018-19, Rodrigues was the ninth leading scorer on one of the worst teams in the league, still playing less than 16 minutes per game. After two more years of bouncing around from Buffalo to Pittsburgh and then briefly to Toronto (where he never played, used in the deal to balance contracts in a bigger trade) and back to Pittsburgh. Rodrigues’ career was at a cross-roads this past summer.
