The waves coming in and out at the beach. A sunset. Steph Curry shooting jump shots. These are all pretty things. Andrew Bogut’s offensive Synergy profile? Not so much.
Bogut played 26 games last season for the Dallas Mavericks. He didn’t have big minutes or play a ton of games, but he had 944 touches last season, 80% the number of touches Ivica Zubac had.
If you were to pull Bogut’s Synergy data, you’d see his 0.612 points per possession scoring efficiency, which would rank him 397th of 398 players who had at least as many possessions as Bogut last season.
You’d also see that he has the highest turnover percentage of any of those 398 players at 33.3%. One out of every three possessions Bogut had was a turnover.
