Burks as a PG... Which Jazz play-makers set up the most efficient shots for teammates?

I'm not sure the implications of this, but I crunched some numbers using 82games.com.

Here are two stats:

The % of a player's assists that are close shots or dunks. The % of a player's assists that are close shots, dunks, or 3pts.

Mo 29%, 47%
Earl 40%, 45%
Jamaal 36%, 62%

Alec 42%, 60%

Gordon 35%, 52%
Randy 34%, 43%

In summary, Alec and Jamaal are clearly the most effective play-makers at creating the most efficient shots for the team. Now obviously, Mo, Earl, and Jamaal all gain more assists then Alec, so therefore Jamaal gets the best shots on the highest percentage of possessions. However, if nothing else, I think this is some evidence that Burks should be allowed to act as a play-maker on more possessions.
