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%|
|2010-11 E. Gordon||26.5||56||.566|
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.
