Breakdown of rumored Magliore-Blazer trade
Here's a quick snapshot of what the Bucks would get if the rumored Jamaal Magliore to the Blazers trade goes through. I'll post more if it becomes fact.
Steve Blake, PG (Eff48 for '05-'06: 18.58)
Blake is an outstanding outside shooter. He is not a penetrator (91% of his shots last season were outside shots), and in keeping with the entire Bucks roster, he doesn't get to the line often. He has a basket attack percentage of only 18.7%. He is also not very efficient with his productivity as his Eff48 of 18.58 will indicate. However, his defense at the point is not bad at all. And he is an excellent ballhandler and passer. So, depending on the style of play the Bucks employ, he would represent an upgrade at point guard over Ford or Williams. For comparison sake, I have listed TJ Ford's numbers next to Blake's.
eFG%: 51.9 (TJ Ford: 44.0)
eFG on jumpers: 51.2 (TJ Ford: 41.7)
eFG on inside shots: 58.4 (TJ Ford: 47.9)
Passer Rating: 10.9 (TJ Ford: 9.3)
Ballhandler Rating: 25.0 (TJ Ford: 19.2)
Basket Attack% (FTA/FGA): 18.7 (TJ Ford: 28.1)
Defensive eFG%: 46.9% (TJ Ford: 51.3)
Assists/48 min: 8.8 (TJ Ford: 8.9)
TOs / 48 min: 2.3 (TJ Ford: 4.1)
Brian Skinner (Eff48 for '05-'06: 18.53)
Skinner, whom Bucks fans already know intimately, is sort of Magliore lite. He is everything Magliore was but less productive. He's not great at all offensively, he's merely okay defensively, and he can't pass a lick. He will get you rebounds, and he doesn't turn the ball over nearly as much as Magliore. When he was with the Bucks he had an Eff48 around 24, now he's dangling around 19. His best days are behind him. Decent backup, though.
eFG on jump shots: 32.6
eFG on inside shots: 54.5
Passer Rating: 0.6
Rebounder Rating: 27.2
Ballhandler Rating: 3.5
Defensive eFG: 51.4
Basket Attack: 27.6%
Reb/ 48 min: 12.2 (Magliore 15.2)
TO/ 48 min: 2.4 (Magliore 3.2)
Ha Seung Jin (Eff48: 14.4)
Who the hell is this guy? I never heard of him until today. He has NO game, that's all you need to know.
