New analytics are changing the way we view every part of the game of basketball.
The biggest theme in basketball’s growing analytics boom is no individual tactical element, but rather a collective change in the way we look at the game. Key in this change is the way we evaluate college talent preparing to enter the NBA through the yearly draft.
What do you cover?
Using a series of cutting-edge metrics designed by collaborator Layne Vashro, we will attempt to re-define the way college prospects are evaluated. We have several models at our disposal - on top of the standard Expected Wins Peak (EWP) rating, there are several variations. From a model combining EWP with the rankings of popular draft sites and experts, to one listing the closest comparable college players to a given prospect over 30 draft years, we cover all the angles. There’s even a model listing the percentage chance of a prospect panning out into one of four categories: Bust, Bench Player, Starter, or Star.
