Wings Worth Targeting

I just spent some time on both basketball-reference.com and 82games.com trying to figure out which NBA wings would be the most beneficial to the Wolves offensively. I wasn't looking for anything particularly complex, just players who could score at a high rate without having to control the ball. So below the jump is a list of wings that have a usage rate of 18% or above, a true shooting percentage above .530, and have over 50% of their baskets assisted on. Oh, and they have to be 28 or below in age as well.

Players sorted by true shooting percentage.

Player Usg % Assisted % TS%
N. Batum 21.1 81 .601
JJ Redick 19.5 68 .580
K. Martin 24.5 54 .566
2010-11 E. Gordon 26.5 56 .566
K. Thompson 20.7 81 .561
A. Morrow 20.7 81 .559
P. George 18.5 65 .559
A. Afflalo 18.4 77 .549

I'm not sure if this tells us anything we didn't already know, but it accentuates how valuable Batum, Redick or Martin would be next to Rubio. The only player I didn't expect to be on the list was Thompson.
