Are there any stat services that track open shot percentage? (I am wondering about Demarcus' Mid-range shot percentage)

I was talking with someone on the internet about Demarcus Cousins and the topic of his mid-range shooting came up. On hoopdata.com, I was horrified to see that Demarcus shot 32% last year from 16-23 feet (http://www.hoopdata.com/player.aspx?name=DeMarcus+Cousins). Anyone who watched him last year knows that he has a tendency to take some contested shots from that range.

In my discussion I was arguing that Demarcus shouldn't exclusively be a low post player and that he should play on the high block too. If he is hitting open shots from 20 feet, all that does is open up the offense.

My question is, are there any stat services that someone might have access to that shows a player's shot percentage from mid range on open shots?

I have a feeling that Demarcus' "open shot percentage" from mid range could be relatively high. Since I don't have the needed data, can someone post he information on Demarcus and maybe compare him to other mid range shooting bigs, like Paul Milsap and Serge Ibaka?
