Rex would still have offered something of value.

Namely a chance to rest or pull Gibbs or Hubb on a rough night. It just looks like those two are getting run into the ground by the grind of ACC play because they are rarely sitting out and almost never are the two of them on the bench at the same time. Just having Rex to rotate in for them some while not really adding anything offensively himself, might give enough rest to the others so that they might actually score a bit more themselves.

I wonder what Gibbs points per game with Rex vs without Rex is? I can't imagine it's significantly better. I'm guessing Gibbs now is drawing that harder assignment on defense and that is draining enough that he isn't able to add as much offensively.
