Breakdown Deandre Ayton

    Overview

  • Experts don't even rank him among C's. Either he is injured or is just plain bad. Based on his stats from the past 30 days, he is currently ranked 15th with 1402 total points (33.38 avg).
  • He is currently 980 points behind the leader: Nikola Jokic
  • His average points in the past two weeks have increased by 7.3 PPG. That is great, but how long can he perform at this level? If you don't have the confidence he can keep it up, then trade him for a sure thing.
  • Performance Stats

  • Shooting 52.20% from the field this month. Very good for a big man.
  • Shooting 0.00% from beyond the arc this month. I'd love to play against him in a game of 'HORSE'.
  • Assists per game numbers are alright for a center but nothing to brag about at 1.94 apg.
  • Rebounds per game numbers are good for a center / power forward with 8.19 rpg this month.
  • Bonus Qualities

  • Played in 13 less games this year than last year.
  • At this point in the season his numbers compared to last years: PPG: +8.43, APG: +1.19, RPG: +3.73, MPG: +12.42 STLS: --0.06 BLKS: +0.22
