DeMarcus Cousins stats analysis

2

Sacramento DeMarcus Cousins has been markedly different from Kentucky DeMarcus Cousins. Joe Treutlin noted for DraftExpress in February that Cousins attempted 24 jump shots during the entirety of his 2009-2010 season at Kentucky. With the Kings, he’s attempted an absurd 313 shots from outside 10 feet. The jump shot is an aspect of his game Cousins will either need to improve or remove altogether; as of now, it plays a massive role in his overall inefficiency. Cousins’ well-documented turnover problems are also connected to his proclivity to shoot from range. Cousins frequently catches the ball in deep positions on the court, and either puts the ball on the floor (decent odds for a turnover) or puts up a jumper (decent odds for a missed shot). Meanwhile, his field goal percentage at the rim has remained a strong 64 percent, and Cousins attempts a robust 6.5 free throws per 36 minutes. Importantly, there are NBA-quality facets to Cousins’ game. He just needs to go to them with more regularity. His 11 percent offensive rebound rate and 25 percent defensive rebound rate should be cited here as well. Siphoning his used possessions to areas of the floor where he can be more productive will be an important part of Cousins’ development, and it is something that will come with time and coaching - Rohan Cruyff SNB Nation
