Tasmin Mitchell

Mitchell just graduated from LSU, where he averaged 16.8 points and 9.4 rebounds per game, but shot only 43% from the field. That was 10% below his mark the season before, and it's because of how mightily LSU struggled last season. The Tigers went only 2-14 in conference play and 11-19 overall; their woeful offense meant Mitchell had to shoulder more of the burden, to the detriment of his efficiency.

To put things into context, here are LSU's scoring leaders from last season, alongside their minutes per game and their scoring efficiency.

- Tasmin Mitchell: 37.3 mpg, 16.8 ppg, .51% TS
- Bo Spencer: 36.2 mpg, 14.5 ppg, .46% TS
- Storm Warren: 26.7, 11.8 ppg, .57% TS
- Dennis Harris: 14.3 mpg, 4.6 ppg, .53% TS
- Zach Kinsley: 16.0 mpg, 3.4 ppg, .48% TS
- Aaron Dotson: 18.6 mpg, 3.2 ppg, .36% TS
- Chris Bass: 24.0 mpg, 2.3 ppg, .38% TS

Doesn't get much worse than that. Chris Bass in particular is a demonstration of the Mike Bizoukas Theorem.

This obviously hurt Mitchell's production, which hurt his draft stock. Mitchell is a willing and capable passer, but it doesn't help when he has no one to pass to. Mitchell also is not a particularly good outside shooter, which isn't helped by the team having no one else worth defending out there (save for Spencer and his 28% 3pt on 7 attempts per game.) And as a 6'7 face-up power forward, Mitchell's NBA prospects were already disadvantaged enough. I guess DeShawn Sims had it comparatively easy.
