In the book Stumbling on Wins, Professor David Berri cited research he had done in which he attempted to identify the college box score statistics (and extrinsic factors) that might suggest a certain prospect will be a productive NBA player. He found that most of the traditional box score statistics had no statistical significance, except three: 2pt%, Steals, and Rebounds. I computed the positional averages for each of this year’s prospects in those three categories, plus True Shooting Percentage, and Win Score per 40 minutes. Brandon Knight (PG/SG) WS40 TS% 2pt% Reb40 Stls40 Average 7.38 57.3 49.3 4.9 1.6 Knight 4.71 55.1 46.1 4.5 0.7 Kyle Singler (PF/SF) WS40 TS% 2pt% Reb40 Stls40 12.56 58.8 56.1 11.1 1.2 7.51 54.1 49.7 7.5 0.9
