Richardson was top 20 in catch-and-shoot 3 attempts. Jimmy Butler was bottom 20, for players over 1800 minutes. In fact, the combo of Richardson and Horford had more catch-and-shoot 3 attempts (538) than Redick and Butler (462).

From my perspective, I think spacing will be better for us this season. Specially if Embiid continues to improve on his perimeter shooting.


I am hoping so. JJ couldn’t even be sagged off of much with his movement, release, and accuracy, so he obviously provided spacing. However, if Ben shoots some mid-range shots, and the other guys shoot league average from outside, we should have good spacing.
