Orlando Magic 2010 40 min PER
ESPN.com has published John Hollinger's player projections for the 2010-2011 season. Two big things: he project Pietrus as the starter at SF, and the only 2 above average players are Dwight and Ryan Anderson.
JAMEER NELSON, PG
Projection: 16.9 pts, 4.2 reb, 7.1 ast per 40 min; 15.07 PER
Biggest weakness is inability to draw fouls.
VINCE CARTER, SG
Projection: 19.1 pts, 4.9 reb, 4.0 ast per 40 min; 14.95 PER
Wasn't as bad as we remember in playoffs. 17.8 points on 43.1 in the 4 losses against Boston which was better than his regular season numbers
MICKAEL PIETRUS, SF
Projection: 14.9 pts, 5.2 reb, 1.4 ast per 40 min; 11.73 PER
He's probably the most mistake-prone shooting specialist in basketball.
RASHARD LEWIS, PF
Projection: 15.4 pts, 5.8 reb, 2.0 ast per 40 min; 13.23 PER
Has improved as a defender at the 4, he finished last among power forwards in rebound rate.
DWIGHT HOWARD, C
Projection: 21.8 pts, 15.0 reb, 2.2 ast per 40 min; 24.43 PER
Needs to avoid offensive fouls and make better passes out of double-teams.
QUENTIN RICHARDSON, SG
Projection: 12.8 pts, 7.0 reb, 1.9 ast per 40 min; 11.61 PER
He's tough and a good team defender.
RYAN ANDERSON, PF
Projection: 21.4 pts, 8.8 reb, 1.6 ast per 40 min; 18.43 PER
Bad defensively but was second on the team in points per 40 mins last season trailing Vince by .1
J.J. REDICK, SG
Projection: 16.1 pts, 3.3 reb, 3.4 ast per 40 min; 13.74 PER
Very good at drawing fouls, and can handle most shooting guards without help. Doesn't get steals, blocks or rebounds.
CHRIS DUHON, PG
Projection: 9.8 pts, 3.2 reb, 6.7 ast per 40 min; 10.37 PER
Low turnover rate, doesn't shoot much.
BRANDON BASS, PF
Projection: 17.0 pts, 8.1 reb, 1.2 ast per 40 min; 16.01 PER
If he ever gets significant time, he will put up numbers.
MARCIN GORTAT, C
Projection: 10.6 pts, 13.0 reb, 0.7 ast per 40 min; 13.93 PER
The difference between 09-10 and 10-11 was that he ws getting fewer offensive rebounds which means fewer easy putbacks.
JASON WILLIAMS, PG
Projection: 10.6 pts, 2.8 reb, 6.3 ast per 40 min; 11.25 PER
Hollinger made up the phrase 'ball vacuum' (opposite of ball pressure) to describe J-Will's defense.
DANIEL ORTON, C
Most likely just trade filler
STANLEY ROBINSON, SF
Needs to develop offense to stick in the league
MALIK ALLEN, PF
Spent last season in Denver proving that he wasn't an NBA player.
