Assist Charts 2010-11: Austin Daye

This is the latest installment of a series called “Assist Charts.” For each of the 13 Pistons who played this year, I’m going to show whom they assisted and who assisted them.

Each post will be divided into two sections: Player assists to and Assists from player. Player assists to shows who the featured player assisted. Assists from player shows who assisted the featured player.

Each section will display two pie graphs and corresponding tables. One graph and table will show totals, and the other set will show per 36 minutes.

All the graphs and tables are color-coded with a specific color assigned to each player throughout the series. Point guards are blue. Shooting guards are orange. Small forwards are green. Power forwards are red. Centers are yellow.

What we learned

I think Austin Daye’s best position right now is shooting guard. Until he gets stronger, small forward can be tough for him – and power forwarded, where he started early last season, is nearly impossible for him. His length allows him to guard most twos, and he has a huge matchup advantage over most shooting guards. He can shoot, with a clear sightline to the basket, over nearly all of them.

But am I crazy for believing he could play some point guard? Daye didn’t have a ton of assists, but he assisted Richard Hamilton, a player at his best when coming off screens and being assisted, most often per 36 minutes on the court with each teammate. Plus, the rest of his assists were pretty evenly distributed – which I consider a good sign for a point guard.

What we learned

I’d really like to see that number from Greg Monroe go up next year. That would be a great sign that the Pistons’ two best young offensive players are in sync.

Otherwise, nothing really jumps out about who assisted Daye.
