An has played 71 games in his career. If he had made 1 extra 3P every four games that he played, he would be shooting over 40%. Another way to look at it - he has missed 114 3P shots in his career (54-168). If one out of every 9 of those shots had gone in, he would be shooting 40%.This is exactly where I am. He was drafted for one reason and that is to make threes. I'd take the questionable defense and out of control play all day long if he was shooting 40% from three at a decent volume. His career 32% from deep is still SSS in my opinion, but the clock is ticking. If he truly can't shoot he'll be in Europe sooner rather than later.
I'm never falling for a Summer League performance again.
It's early. He hasn't shot much. And the biggest thing to me is that he hasn't gotten to that point where he expects his shot to go in. When he does, he'll hit them at a high clip. His mechanics are too good not to make them.
