Assist Charts 2010-11: Chris Wilcox

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

Chris Wilcox didn’t assist any player more than he did Greg Monroe. Obviously, that’s a tad misleading, because Wilcox played more with Monroe than any Piston besides Tayshaun Prince.

But besides his assists to shooters Richard Hamilton and Ben Gordon, Wilcox assisted Greg Monroe most often per 36 minutes on the court together. That interior-to-interior passing really showed up unexpectedly late in the season.

What we learned

Chris Wilcox played the part of the traditional big man in pick-and-rolls, and that’s why I think point guards Will Bynum and Rodney Stuckey assisted him most. Wilcox was active cutting to the basket, which explains all his assists from Ben Wallace and Greg Monroe.

But I was pretty surprised to see Richard Hamilton assisted Wilcox so often. I don’t recall Hamilton setting up Wilcox often, and similar players Ben Gordon, Tayshaun Prince and Austin Daye didn’t assist Wilcox much. Can anyone explain why Hamilton assisted Wilcox so often?
