Adequate perimeter shooter from behind the
3pt line & mid-range (streaky)
Can create off the dribble Long arms and active hands defensively (steals and recovery blocks)
Has good positional size and strength
Low turnovers for his career (1.5)
Slow laterally relies on length and hands which leads to fouls
Doesn’t create separation off the dribble leading to forced contested shots
Doesn’t finish well through contact – below average athlete
Below average passer 3pt and FT percentages dropped from last season 3pt 38% to 33.7% & FT 88.7 to 78.1
Julian has good positional size and strength; he is a fluid ball-handler who can create a little off the dribble. He is a serviceable defender; coupled with his size and strength he has quick hands and long arms, which he uses to recover when he's blown by. He must improve his consistency as a shooter as he can be very streaky, he also struggles to create separation for himself off the dribble requiring him to take forced contested shots.

Volume Shooting Analytics:
Champagnie's data is significant enough to evaluate him as a volume shooter. However, he does not project to have an ability to make a high volume of 3s at a high percentage. Taking a high volume, he could expect to shoot 34%.
This data was created by AJ Wahl by ploting each game of a player's most recent season. The x-axis represents the amount of threes taken per minute, in order to normalize for minutes played. The y-axis is simply the player's three point percentage in that particular game. The line represents the trend between a player's three point volume, and their success. A upward slope means that a player gains efficiency as they shoot more often, and a downward slope means that a player loses efficiency the more shots they take. Note that 0.2 3PA/36 is roughly 7 3s, and 0.3 translates to 11 3s. Only players with an R^2 value above .04 were analyzed, to ensure that each player has at least some correlation between their attempts and their frequency.
Defensive Versatility Analytics:
Champagnie is solidly an above average defensively versatile wing, in the 62nd percentile. He succeeds most in guarding bigs, as well as in switches. He also avoids fouling. He is extremely well rounded and does not have any particular defensive weaknesses out of position.
This data was hand-tracked by AJ Wahl and Bryon Cook. Every single defensive possesion of each player's season was analyzed. This dataset includes all possessions when the defender is guarding on-ball, in man-to-man, and against a player not within their position group who shoots the ball, is fouled, or commits a turnover. The percentile listed above is a players standing compared to their postion group calculated by compliling and weighing various different metrics derrived from the hand-tracked data. This data only measures a portion of a player's impact, but it is clear that the ability to defend out of one's position group is a vital skill to contributing to winning basketball at the professional level.
