If we replaced Chandler with an average NCAA SF, how would the % play out?

Negative % are bad. Positive % are good.

For instance, Chandler Parsons scored 12.91% less points than the average 2012 SF.

Now to narrate this data because I don't expect you to read that data. I just have it up there as proof of concept.

If you line up Chandler Parsons NBA data with his NCAA data you see that he's basically his college averages. He's had to step up his defense to compensate (More steals than NBA avg). He's had to foul more but still within NBA SF averages. He's improved his number of blocks but not by much and he's still below NBA average. He's always been below average blocker. Defensively, he's average. I don't think he'll keep up his steals. And steals are probably the first thing to go when facing high caliber teams.

He's always been an above average rebounder but most of his rebounds in college came offensively. He'll need a lot of spacing to be more effective. He's got the rebounding knack and while he's below the NBA average, this is an area where he'll probably spike next year.

Chandler is great around the rim but fails miserably at the 3 point line. He takes more shots and shoots worse than the average NBA SF. In fact, he shoots worse than college kids. Same with his FT%. In fact, he shoots 20% worse than the average NBA SFer and goes to the FT line 50% less.

He's also an above average passer.

Why is Chandler Parsons effective? He has an uncanny sense for Offensive Rebounds. He has improved his defense slightly from his NCAA days. He finishes 3-5% better than his peers around the rim but he can't shoot the 3 very well. Nor can he do it from the free throw line. Unfortunately as he tries to improve, he'll take more 3s and that'll mess with his points per shot efficiency. But without a 3 point ability, he'll find the paint clogged.

In conclusion, his NBA stats map very closely to his NCAA abilities. It is very likely that Chandler's NBA% will be similar to his NCAA%, i.e., he'll be an above average efficient finisher with poor shooting. He'll compensate with more hustle, defense, rebounds, and assists.

In many respects, I don't see how a team needs both Royce White and Chandler Parsons.
