Tony Wroten 28 Points Full Highlights (1/2/2015)

One could say that Tony Wroten is having a breakout season; he is scoring 17 points per game a third of the way through the year, and his efficiency has never been higher. However, such a declaration would be false. Wroten is indeed scoring at unprecedented (for him) levels of volume and accuracy, but he had set the bar so ridiculously low that improvement was almost guaranteed.

Put another way, he now has positive win-shares. Barely.

Out of players who actually get consistent minutes (you’re welcome, Clint Capela), Wroten is second only to his comrade Michael Carter-Williams in turnovers/36 at 4.7. He assists at a good rate but this is negated by his tendency to not squeeze the orange. He also loves shooting threes despite not having the ability to make them. It is unclear how he would perform in the lesser role that he deserves, so we’ll just leave it at this: Tony Wroten is just Jordan Crawford 2.0.
