Dyson Daniels Stats
2021-22 G League Ignite
- 11.3 points, 5.9 rebounds, 4.4 assists, 1.9 steals, 0.8 blocks, 2.4 turnovers, 0.9 3-pointers, 31.0 minutes per game. 44.9% field goal, 25.5% 3-point shooting.
Daniels stuffed the stat sheet in the G League and displayed intriguing potential to grow at the next level. His defensive upside is abundantly apparent, as he used his length to disrupt passing lanes and get easy blocks when rotating over to help his teammates. He also showed off a quick first step that allowed him to get to the basket with ease. The biggest area of growth will be his jump shooting after making just 25.5% from deep last season.
