Interior Defense Metrics for Bulls' trade targets!


From the paper The Dwight Effect: A New Ensemble of Interior Defense Analytics for the NBA which was presented at the MIT Sloan Sports Analytics Conference we have the following data in Table 1 "The top and bottom 5 interior defenders

according to proximal FG%, which is defined as the opponent’s FG% :

Top 5 Proximal FG%

1. Larry Sanders 34.9%

2. Andrea Bargnani 35.2%

3. Kendrick Perkins 37.3%

4. Elton Brand 38.0%

5. Roy Hibbert 38.7%

Bottom 5 Proximal FG%

48. Kevin Love 52.1%

49. Jonas Valanciunas 52.8%

50. David Lee 53.0%

51. Jordan Hill 53.9%

52. Anderson Varejao 54.2%

So...Bargs looks good, Love bad and Boozer isn't in the bottom 5....I thought that was all pretty interesting.
