This might be on here already, but, take a look:
Brown assist totals
2017 - 64
2018 - 114
2019 - 100
2020 - 155 (projected)
Tatum assist totals
2018 - 128
2019 - 168
2020 - 230 (projected)
For contrast, how about Marcus? He''s a guard, thus, will have lots of assists and? His game is wildly variable thus, so are his assist totals:
2016 - 185
2017 - 364
2018 - 259
2019 - 321
2020 - 350 (projected)
Tatum is going to get challenged by opposing defenses which will do a couple of things.
1) Continue his trend of passing to an open shooter more often.
2) Probably help his team win some more games and discourage more traps by opponents.
Brown's trend is improving also and will help his game by forcing opposing defenses to "pick their poison."
Kemba's assist total will be off about 20% this year because he plays on one of the most balanced offensive teams in the NBA.
Daniel Theis, an offensive force over the last 20 games:
2018 - 56 (935 minutes)
2019 - 68 (907 minutes)
2020 - 112 (1600 minutes/projected)
Theis has been gobbling up Kemba's missing point contribution.
Theis', last 4 games - 28 for 46 from the field and the refs are actually sending him to the line once in awhile:
In his last 5 starts he's had 20 free throw attempts.
Evidently, the Daniel Theis era has dawned in Boston...and not a moment too soon!
Now for the "bad" news.
Hayward assist totals
Utah - 296 (19.7 ppg) FTA - 477
Utah - 252 (21.9 ppg) FTA - 429
2019 - 244 (11.9 ppg) FTA - 187
2020 - 382 (17.4 ppg) FTA - 168
Hayward in Boston is about 47% from the field and 82% from the line. He needs to shoot the ball more....a lot more. He is as good a scorer as anyone in Green and the other guys are really good.
Brown and Tatum could pass to open shooters more often and the trend might indicate that they are.
Hayward needs to stop passing to other shooters and score more often...he is a statistically better scorer than the guy's he is deferring to. In Utah he was averaging close to 400 free throw attempts a season.
