Royce O'Neale (198-SF-93, college: Baylor)< - Find 2017-18's Magic
Among the 213 players with at least as many minutes, Royce O'Neale is currently 202nd in Player Impact Plus-Minus. He's at minus-0.28 PIPM Wins Added.

His Net Rating swing is minus-eight, meaning Utah's net points per 100 possessions is eight points worse with O'Neale on the floor. It was 7.5 points better last season.

So, what flipped?

It's hard to put a finger on exactly why O'Neale's impact is so much different this season.

Numbers like Steal Percentage, True Shooting Percentage and Defensive Box Plus-Minus are all almost identical. Do slight regressions in Assist Percentage and Rebounding Percentage, and a big one in Free Throw Rate really make this much of a difference?

Maybe, but it feels like more of an intangible thing. Cliche as it sounds, O'Neale was one of those consummate hustle guys. It seemed like he made all his defensive assignments uncomfortable, had a nose for the ball and was always in the right spot.

This is a hard one. Maybe that's why I titled it 'magic.' Whatever intangible energy is missing, O'Neale needs to find it.

It takes work for a midlevel recruit from Greenville, South Carolina - ranked the No. 272 prospect in the country, with no scholarship offers from major college hoops powers - to become a possible lottery pick....   [read more]
