Challenging the narrative that Dario Saric was a different player for the Wolves last season than he was for the Sixers in his breakout year

​ Here are Darios stats in his "breakout" 2017-18 year for the Sixers next to his stats with the wolves last year per 100 possessions. They show that he was slightly lower usage but the same player. He had an awful start of the season last year for the Sixers which influenced his overall stats but for the Wolves statistically, he was solid. I think he was protected on the Sixers next to Covington and Embiid and a bit exposed next to Towns, but his real value is likely in between. Hes a PF who does little things well and is a good shooter who is held back by his physical profile. | Season | Age | Tm | Lg | Pos | G | GS | MP | FG | FGA | FG% | 3P | 3PA | 3P% | 2P | 2PA | 2P% | FT | FTA | FT% | ORB | DRB | TRB | AST | STL | BLK | TOV | PF | PTS | | ORtg | DRtg | |---------|-----|-----|-----|-----|----|----|------|-----|------|-------|-----|-----|-------|-----|------|-------|-----|-----|-------|-----|-----|------|-----|-----|-----|-----|-----|------|--|------|------| | 2017-18 | 23 | PHI | NBA | PF | 78 | 73 | 2310 | 8.4 | 18.5 | 0.453 | 3.3 | 8.3 | 0.393 | 5.1 | 10.2 | 0.501 | 3.7 | 4.3 | 0.86 | 3.2 | 7.6 | 10.8 | 4.2 | 1.1 | 0.4 | 3.1 | 3.3 | 23.8 | | 113 | 107 | | 2018-19 | 24 | MIN | NBA | PF | 68 | 28 | 1627 | 7.5 | 16.6 | 0.454 | 2.9 | 7.5 | 0.383 | 4.7 | 9.2 | 0.511 | 3.1 | 3.5 | 0.875 | 3.1 | 7.8 | 10.9 | 3 | 1.2 | 0.2 | 2.1 | 4.2 | 21 | | 116 | 114 |
