Default Cuban's Stats Guy Prefers Wright at SF

This is from a series running on ESPN's Truehoop concerning Mark Winston. It caught my eye that he doesn't like Wright too much overall, but he did like him playing one position over another by a mile.

Last year [Maverick assistant] Terry Stotts did a really great job asking us questions. Before the Spurs series, they asked us about Antoine Wright. He's not on the team anymore, thank god. OK, he had a bad rating in our system. But the fascinating thing was, when he played small forward, he was good. When he played shooting guard, he was terrible. So we can break that down. I can find every combination where he was small forward and he was good. Every combination where he was shooting guard he was terrible.

Against the Spurs, they used him as a small forward and he was great. Every time he played for Howard at small forward, they killed the Spurs.
The articles are pretty good, with a lot of the emphasis statistically, not placed on per, but rather how a particular group does on the floor both offensively and defensively.

It isn't. Doesn't matter what position he plays as we have 4 other players who are more than capable of manning the 2 guard spot.

I'm confident Wright will carve out his role fairly early in the year with his defense and athleticism. Not to mention this guy can knock down an open shot too.
