Pistons head of advanced stats: Frank loves pick-and-roll combos

Charles Klask, who heads Detroit's analytics department talks about his role and some of his projects -- including one on pick-and-rolls.

If you're looking for another piece of evidence that Jose Calderon is going to fit right in with the Pistons I give you this video. In it Charles Klask, Detroit's leader in analytics talks about his job in general but at about the 1:20 mark he talks about a project coach Lawrence Frank asked him to dive into -- information on pick-and-roll combinations.

Sadly, the numbers pointed out that Detroit's best pick-and-roll partners were Rodney Stuckey and Jason Maxiell. Well, Frank now has one of the NBA's premier pick-and-roll guards at his disposal. I'm sure Greg Monroe and Andre Drummond will be extremely happy.
