Right now I'd rank him as 7th behind:
Going forward and factoring in age and future progression, I'd rank him 9th behind:
and maybe Graham.
Among relevant qualifiers at PG, Fred is:
7th in 3pt%
3rd in steals.
1st in deflections.
5th in defensive rating.
11th in offensive win shares.
2nd in defensive win shares.
5th in DBPM
8th in BPM
and 8th in VORP (!)
Steelo's deep dive into Fred's point-guard-acy.
Wow, this is sad.
First of all, BBREF stats are based on estimates and raw stats combined lol. NBA.com is the site to go to as well as using the skills that he has.
Go read them yourself, VORP, DBPM, BPM, they are all based on estimates based on raw stats
The only stats of value you posted are three point percentage, deflections, and steals.
Fred is a good PG defender, but he is not a good defender when caught in a switch due to lack of size.
Fred is a good three point shooter, but that's about it, and he needs others to make the plays for him as he cannot finish around the rim or score in the midrange. What will happen when no one is creating plays for him to hit open threes and he has no other way to score? Again, the team relies all on Kyle and will fall apart when he leaves or ages.
You would really take Fred over Donovan Mitchell, Kyrie Irving, Fox, Simmons, Walker, Brogdon?
I should also add Jrue Holiday to the list.
This is going to be comical in a few years looking back.
