Assist Charts 2010-11: Greg Monroe

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

Adjusted for time playing with each teammate, Greg Monroe assisted Chris Wilcox most often. Chris Wilcox! Yes, the same Wilcox who plays power forward and doesn’t really create his own shot often.

That’s Monroe’s Princeton-style roots on display. He often found Wilcox on cuts, and I hope that Pistons take advantage of Monroe’s ability to make that pass more often next year – whether it’s to Wilcox or someone else.

What we learned

To nobody’s surprise, Tracy McGrady assisted Monroe most often. Monroe didn’t become involved in the Pistons’ designed scoring until he became a pick-and-roll partner for McGrady midway through the season. Once he did, that became a staple both players.

But I was a bit surprised to see Rodney Stuckey also assisted Monroe fairly often, too.

By the way, don’t be fooled by that high percentage of unassisted baskets by Monroe. Most of those came on putbacks. He was still heavily reliant on teammates to set him up.
