Averaging 13.6 points, 4.3 rebounds and 1.1 assists on 43.6 percent FG shooting and 43.9 percent 3P shooting (7.5 3PA), Scott Wood has solidified himself as the premier sharpshooter in Santa Cruz. With 26 games under his belt in Santa Cruz, it’s really no wonder why Golden State added him to their preseason roster in the first place.

Wood was a noted leader in both 3P percentage and FT percentage over the course of his four years starting for NC State, so it’s only right that he lead Santa Cruz in both 3P percentage and FT percentage (96.1). He also leads Santa Cruz in both offensive win shares (1.5) and win shares (2.3).

Among the entire D-League, not only does he lead in FT percentage, but he also ranks 14th in true shooting percentage (64.8) and 20th in effective field goal percentage (60.8).

Among all players that have played at least 10 D-League games and average more than seven attempts from downtown, Wood’s accuracy from deep is second to Pierre Jackson of the Texas Legends, who just recently signed a 10-day contract with the Dallas Mavericks.

Anthony Brown was another sharpshooter who recently signed a 10-day contract, this one coming from the Orlando Magic, who rank 28th in 3P percentage despite attempting the 12th most threes in the league.

Teams that could possibly make a playoff appearance but lack accuracy from behind the arc should consider adding a guy like Scott Wood.
