Assist Charts 2010-11: Will Bynum

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

Will Bynum assisted Richard Hamilton, Chris Wilcox and Charlie Villanueva fairly often. Depending how everything shakes out, that might be the Pistons’ bench next year.

In fact, besides the vaunted Rodney Stuckey-to-DaJuan Summers connection, nobody connected more often than Bynum to Hamilton.

What we learned

Will Bynum had just 23.6 percent of his field goals assisted, by far the lowest on the team. By a wide margin, Tracy McGrady assisted Bynum most often, but Bynum can’t count on playing as many minutes (265) with another point guard again.

When Bynum was in the game, he was going to make the play – for himself or a teammate. But he wasn’t going to have someone else set him up.
