After tonight's game vs Utah Giddey leads all rookies in assists with 5.8 per game, while sitting eighth in scoring at 10.8 points per game, third in rebounding at 7.3 per game, tied for fifth in steals at 1.0 per game and fourth in blocks at 0.6 per game.
As the above posters have stated he would be higher on assists if his team mates did their bit. His rebounding is impressive too.
Adding this from a news article

He would probably be averaging a double-double with ease in points and assists if more of his well-placed passes were converted by his Thunder teammates as he averages 11.5 potential assists a game, which ranks 21st in the league.

Potential assists is a flawed stat, i love Giddey but he would not be averaging 10+ assists on any team.

His usage rate isn’t high enough for that. Only one player in nba is actually averaging 10 assists per game. The point is he’s creating a lot of shots though that his teammates can’t convert.

he’s currently 19th in assists per game at 5.8, if his teammates could score could he be at 7.5? That’s too 10
