While I agree step back 3s are not likely to be a big part of his game, working on his post game isn't the best use of his time either given the way the game has trended away from that discipline. At least he's working on his footwork and shooting mechanics.

pretty much this, its a footwork exercise and mechanics. the step back is also used in the face up game too regardless of where you are. but DH will find himself more at the 3 point line than in the post with the way Raptors run their offense.

DH is going to be used in the PnR a lot or stand in the corner, luring his big man defender away from the basket.

He ain't going anywhere. Probably gonna be suspended for at least half the season though (without pay).
Could also see him get moved on draft day.

K.Low got a new toy. Looks like an Ferrari 812 GTS...

You can check it on Fred VanVleets IG story.

Nice.

I wonder if the back to back shortened seasons will extend Kyles seasons of above average production?

Are the Raps gonna do anything or nah? IIRC the last major player acquisition was JV for Gasol. Only Masai and Bobby would get away with taking 2 years off from making personnel transactions :lol:
