In Moneyball, Billy Beane famously acquired assets undervalued by the system, and baseball's individualist format allowed for greater team success. In modern-day basketball, the development system now generates more undervalued assets, and teams do a better job of identifying them. Perfected explores the relentless, high-stakes quest to find and shape what author Andy Glockner calls "perfected players." It also shares what happens to them at the highest levels.

While basketball has been around for well over a century, the last few years have seen a massive change in the amount of money, technology, and techniques used to find and evaluate players. Where do perfected players come from? How are NBA teams using big data?Perfected answers these and other questions about the fast-paced and fast-changing sport, including the top ten current perfected players and the most perfected player of all time.
