Advanced Stats on Turner, Favors, Cousins and Johnson

Previous updates:

November 5

Again, this a check-up on rookies the Sixers realistically could have taken instead of Evan Turner, and a comparison to Turner using advanced statistics. We'll do this every 5 to 10 games. I also want to remind you this is a SMALL SAMPLE SIZE! Viewer discretion is advised.

Turner, Favors and Cousins all had significant drop-offs since our last update, while Wesley Johnson made positive strides. Through the first 10th of the season our guy Evan Turner has the lowest PER, TS%, and offensive rating. If it weren't his defense and defensive rebounding, he'd be significantly worse than his counterparts. 

Two side notes on Turner 

  1. Although Turner ranks third in total rebounding percentage, trailing Favors by 6.3%, he ranks second in defensive rebounding (24.0) trailing Cousins (25.9) by only 1.9%.
  2. In games Andre Iguodala missed with injury Turner is averaging 14 points with a TS% of .520. In games Turner and Iguodala have both played in Turner is averaging 7 points with a TS% of .446.

My ranking as of 11/19/10:

  1. Derrick Favors
  2. DeMarcus Cousins
  3. Evan Turner
  4. Wesley Johnson
