Assist Charts 2010-11: Rodney Stuckey

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

Maybe Rodney Stuckey’s ability to set up Richard Hamilton has been underrated. Aside from the Stuckey-to-DaJuan Summers connection, which is distorted by a small sample size, and Will Bynum-to-Hamilton, which also had a much smaller sample, no Piston assisted another more per minute on the court together than Stuckey assisted Hamilton.

Stuckey also showed a good chemistry with Charlie Villanueva. What are the odds they both start or both back up next season? It might be a blessing in disguise if they’re on the same unit.

What we learned

Rodney Stuckey made good use of his time at off guard, getting a decent number of assists from Tracy McGrady and Will Bynum. That doesn’t mean Stuckey can’t play point guard, but I know I’m comfortable with him at shooting guard. I can’t say the same about him running the point.
