Intro

Devin Vassell is a Sophomore guard (6’7) out of Florida State University. In high school was named the regional Player of the Year by the Gwinnett Daily Post.

Statistical Doppelgangers

Advance Stats Dopplegangers

Oddly enough, when we look at the advance stats of Devin Vassell, there is only one player who posted similar number and that was Mikal Bridges.

Traditional Stats Dopplegangers

On the other hand, since 13 5 and 2 are not that rare, there are a lot of player who posted similar number in their sophomore year. The most interesting of them being:

Jared Dudley
Mike Miller
Khris Middleton
Josh Howard
Josh Childress

Shooting Dopplegangers

When comparing Vassells impresive 49% field goal percentage, 41% from three and the average 74% free throw percentage, three names pop up:

Luke Babbitt
Doug McDermont
Matt Harpring

Verdict

So when we compress all of that, what are the potential scenarios that could befall the career of the young Devin Vassell?

  1. Kyle Singler who can defend multiple positions
  2. Upgraded version of Otto Porter
  3. Khris Middleton, but a more aggressive defender and rebounder
  4. Mike Miller plus multiple time First Team All-Defense

Heaven or Hell

In this section I try to figure out what a players best season would be if he fulfills his potential (Heaven) and Hell is for the last season he is given a chance before the league gives up on him.

Heaven – Devin Vassell averages 21 points, 8 rebounds, 3 assists, 2,5 steals and 2 blocks.

Hell – Devin Vassell averages 10 points, 5 rebounds, 1.5 assists , 1 steal and 0.5 blocks.
