So, what would happen to Orlando if they traded Dwight Howard for Tim Duncan? What happens to the Knicks if they can replace Al Harrington with King James? What would happen to the Bobcats if you replaced Raja Bell with Allen Iverson? Scratch that last one – it will only disappoint me. Well, you know how I came up with that formula in One of the 3 kinds of lies? Well, now you can use that on everyone in the league: Click here to go to the Player Swap Page.
I kept the same formula and the same stats for the hypothetical stats. You can review the basics on the Swap Page (and the link to the full article is also there). An addition I made with this tool: I do not just calculate what the team's efficiencies will be with their new player on the court, I also estimate how they might impact the overall team efficiencies. How's that, you may ask? Well, the initial example was Emeka Okafor and Tyson Chandler, and Emeka played about twice as many minutes last year as Tyson. That can be a problem depending on the quality of a team's bench – but it would not show up when only looking at on court efficiencies. So, I added a few extra rows – expected overall efficiencies when Tyson takes all of Emeka's minutes, when Tyson plays the same number he did last year – giving significantly more to the bench, and when Tyson plays the mid-point in minutes between his and Emeka's numbers. Basically, it penalizes someone if they are forcing their team into giving a lot of minutes to weaker players.
I am not repeating my caveats from the other post – so, look it over, use it and comment – it is by no means a finished product and I would welcome constructive feedback on it (or suggestions for other tools you might like to see it).
