Christian Coassin, Ranking Prospects By Analytics

http://www.basketballanalyticsbook.com

This article discusses a combined analytical score for professional basketball prospects, and how they stack up against high level players from the past. I found this article fascinating because I think that the analytical model is beneficial in terms of scouting talent, but I don’t trust it enough to base my predictions solely off of it. I think it will be very interesting to see what teams do with this in the future, and how they will balance the analytical method with the timeless “eye-test”.
