Statistics Rumors

Based on analytical projections, Russell has been compared to accomplished NBA players, including MVP runner-up James Harden. Among players drafted in the last 10 years, SPM sees Russell as having a similar floor/ceiling coming out of college as Deron Williams, Derrick Rose, Jrue Holiday and Raymond Felton. As much as analytics love Russell, it is also important to recognize that SPM predicts a high probability of him being a bust. Among SPM’s top 25 projected players, Russell has the highest bust likelihood, at 40.9 percent.
