PJP48 mid-season evaluation of NBA Draft 2021 by PER

Right three tables below, all with the same data but different POVs. (note about 10 players did not play at all or play enough to bother with their PERs)

First columns contain the original draft order and players current PER.

The second set are the draft re-done based on PER.

The third set is the players-drafted cohort, but in order of my PJP48 scores.

As you can see, the metric is much more correct than the NBA when it comes to predicting efficiency. Upshot, trade for Queta, Preston, Bassey et al.
