Utilize Andrew Wiggins better on offense
Things are very clear in Andrew Wiggins’ case.
When he is aggressive, he is one of the best players in the world. Steve Kerr and the Warriors managed to make his lows seem better by transforming Wiggins to an All-Defense type player, but he can be much more than that.
When Wiggins has 16 or more field goal attempts, the Warriors have a record of 12 wins and 3 losses.
Advanced stats indicate that the All-Star forward is an overall offensive talent, logging an excellent 1.34 PPP off cuts and1.15 PPP as a spot-up shooter, while having 1.10 PPP in transition, 0.91 PPP off screens, 0.86 in isolation, and 0.87 on post-ups, all of them between above average and elite.
Wiggins thrived in a “Klay role” as long as the Warriors legend was out, but since he came back the adjustment was not that smooth. Green could fix a lot of these problems, but getting him in a position to succeed, even without Draymond on the floor is crucial.
Steve Kerr could try engaging Wiggins more in the game by getting him some touches in the post or by giving him the chance to drive more to the basket.
The former 2014 No. 1 overall pick has some unique talents and obvious disadvantages. He shoots with 54.5% after dribbling the ball 2 times or less, while shooting 42% when dribbles 7 times or more.
Despite the fact that his abilities are unquestionable, it is very important to hold him accountable and make him play through the offense and not float away from it.
