i would be fine with a 5 passing big in triangle d1. i definitely wouldnt set his distro to 0 either, unless he sucked offensively and that justified the 0. the reality is passing is not that important at the 4/5 and you can have fantastic players at those positions with no bh or passing. the team benefit of bh/pass at the 4/5 seems very, very slight (if anything), and the personal benefit is basically a relatively minor reduction in TOs. 50 less passing might cost you, what, half a TO on a 10ppg scorer? less? what does 50 less rebounding do? or 50 ath? they take a great d1 big from great to total ****/worthless (or they might be able to play sf). really, if the guy is great without looking at his bh/pass, hes great with 1 bh/pass or 50 bh/pass. dont sweat it, and i wouldnt play the player much differently, either.
honestly, if you offered me a 95 ath/reb/def/sb/lp big, and i could take him with 1 bh/pass or 60 bh/pass, id have to stop and think, hard. is 60 bh/pass worth him possibly leaving earlier? i dont know. probably not. id probably take the 95 everything important 1bh/pass guy and hope he graduates.
