Week 11: NBA Value Power Rankings

Our latest edition of NBA Total Team Value Rankings has the Magic in the top 5 and the Pelicans cracking the top 10, while Miami and Minnesota finds themselves falling to towards the bottom of the rankings.

Week 11 Risers
Interesting to see that the Cleveland Cavaliers and Chicago Bulls were both the highest risers in Week 11 in the aftermath of the Bynum-Deng trade. With the removal of Deng from the Bulls roster they shot up 13 spots due to unloading such a large cap hit with a roster that already had large cap hits with under performing players. The Cavaliers also rose 13 spots in part because of Anthony Bennett having not played and bringing in Deng who has had an immediate impact.

Week 11 Fallers
The largest faller in Week 11 goes to the Minnesota Timberwolves. The biggest reason for their drop was Chase Budinger had substantial playing time (4 games with 16.9 MPG), however, his performance has been very low (PER of 3.6).

What determines a team's True Value?
Spotrac's True Value Statistic is determined by comparing an indiviudal player's current statistical production to the average player's production. The same comparison is made in terms of financial figures (2013 cap value). To find a team's overall True Value Statistic, we take the TVS from each indvidiual starting players plus any bench player with at least 12 MPG to find a total value number for that particular team.

Criteria
We found all players that had a starting role within the last two weeks as well as any player that came off the bench with at least 12 minutes per game player, equivalent to having played at least one quarter per game).

The average team True Value was 0.29. This means that any team Total TVS that at 0.29 is playing at their financial value. Teams that have a higher TVS than 0.29 are playing above their financial value, while below 0.29 are overpaying for the production that is currently being produced.

Layman's Terms
Simply put, we're looking at how a team is producing based on the financial spending of their current roster. Because of this, our list varies when looking at the Win/Loss record. A team like the Philadelphia 76ers may seem unworthy at #1 with a 13-26 record, but in terms of the stat product/dollars allocated, they're outperforming the majority of their oppoents. On the contrary a team like the Indiana Pacers, currently 31-7 in the standings, appears to be overpaying/underproducing most of their players.
