Spillovers, Complementarities, and Sorting in Labor Markets with an Application to Professional Sports
Spillovers to productivity across workers may exist when workers produce in teams. Under certain conditions, these spillovers may cause a worker's marginal product to differ across different firms.

Thus, while teammate composition is important to a player's success, there is no evidence for complementarity.
