Brandon isn't a shooter? 39% from the arc - that's better than all of Kawhi's seasons except 1.


If he can shoot close to that percentage on 4-5+ attempts a game vs his 1.8 attempts this year, I'll believe he's a shooter.

we need shooters badly right now. all these guys weve added like rondo and lbj, and existing ball...that is some bad free throw shooting right there. we are going to lose 10 games at the line. lbj should do his thing and get the korvers or allens here.

Who do we consider shooters? Lighter skinned dudes like Redick and Korver? KCP, Hart, Ingram, and Kuzma all did very well last year. Now we add Svi and Vag ( yeah I said it)... it's something to build on...

He will


His sideways shot just isn’t going to work. I hope I eat my words but his shot is mkg/ Marion ugly.

Joe Harris would of been perfect, but he resigned already.


Rather have Ellington than Lance right now, especially with us adding Rondo to the mix.

Kuzma, KCP, Hart and Lebron are all very decent 3 PT shooters. Signing some nba minimum guy who hits 40% from 3 but can’t defend or pass or rebound isn’t going to make us a better team.

Capable 3pt Shooters:

Kuzma
KCP
Wogner
Svi
Bron
Lopez
(Likely to sign another one year deal)

Average 3pt Shooters:

Ingram
Deng
Hart
* Lonzo
(Based on his lifetime of shooting and expected improvement)

Poor 3pt shooters:

Lance
McGee
Zubac

So they have 5 guys you expect to hit a 3 point shot, 4 guys that can hit it a 3rd of the time, and 3 guys who can't, nor are expected to. Overall, they won't be one of the leagues best 3 point shooting teams, but more importantly - they'll no longer be the worst like last season. Bottom line, this is a better shooting team than last seasons team.
