Before I drop Davis Bertans into the grinding gears of The Statistical Doppelgänger Machine, I thought I’d take some guesses at the type of player who might turn up. Then I’ll compare what I guessed against what the machine spat out.
- Bertans probably won’t have close matches. He’s a specialist, and I suspect there are relatively few players who can match his volume of three-point attempts.
- While he needs to play PF because he can’t guard threes or fives, and he doesn’t rebound much, I think we’re going to see SGs and SFs in his mix.
