Terry Rozier is on one of the best-value deals in the NBA
It doesn't take a stats nerd to realize Terry Rozier is on one of the league's better deals, but it certainly doesn't hurt to hear what the numbers have to say about things.
And that's exactly what we dug up for you, someone taking a dive into some of the league's best values of Win Shares created for the money. Twitter user Erika (@emesola) did some research, and came up with the following:
Did some research on NBA players with the best value. These are players who produced Win Shares > 5 for the least amount of $.
That's some stealthy goodness right there, I'll go ahead and say it - Spencer Dinwiddie, while no All-Star, plays almost well enough to earn a spot in the star-challenged East, and John Collins is showing flashes of a high ceiling with few holes in his game. Jakob Poeltl and Dario Saric are living up to their respective hype in an era where big men are struggling to be effective at any price point.
To be honest, I'm surprised ScaryTerry only clocks in at fifth.
For those of you who are curious, Win Shares are one of the more esoteric stats in terms of how they are calculated, but the short version is that it combines a lot of different things to try and get a broader picture of how much an individual player helps their team win.
