   2017 NBA Manifesto
2017-06-29

Mike Muscala
PF/C, 6’11, 240lbs, 25 years old, 4 years of experience

Tailed off late in the year, but emerged as a much higher volume and more efficient three-point shooter than before. While his 3PAr climbs and climbs (up to .329 this season), his usage rate continues to shrink (career low 14.8%), even though as a 41.8% three-point shooter, he should continue to shoot more. This is particularly true when considering that the three-point uptick has seen his offensive rebounding numbers drop far off, and, often giving up strength in the post, he needs to counter that from outside. Muscala could have some value on the market as a stretch five who does a decent job keeping up defensively on pick-and-rolls, without giving up around the basket. The downside of having signed for this fourth season though is that he will not be a restricted free agent.

Player Plan: UFA with full Bird rights but meriting a big pay rise and will have suitors. A three year, $20-24 million deal would be a decent price range for him, but he may be coveted.

2011-03-17

Bucknell's best player, somewhat comfortably, is 6'11 sophomore Mike Muscala. He and his shotblocking is the crux of their interior defense, by far their biggest player (in terms of height, at least), and is an efficient inside/outside, post-up/face-up offensive threat, capable of making shots around the basket with both hands. Surrounding him, senior Darryl Shazier is amongst the nation's leaders in assists at 5.6 a game, alongside a crazily low 1.5 turnovers a contest. Canadian sharpshooter Bryson Johnson is one of the nation's best, casting six and a half per game, hits 46% of them, and is a huge part of the team's .402% three point percentage, the seventh best mark in the league.
