I dunno, he should be a good shooter in the NBA, but sometimes it doesn't work out. He's signed to a cheap as **** 4 year deal, so there is no rush with him, and they have every incentive to develop him for the entirety of the deal given the rest of the salaries on the roster. He's never going to be a guy who beats you off the dribble and scores at the rim in traffic, but he can launch threes with a quick release and shown that he can shoot at all levels until he got to the NBA and played in 3 minute spurts for a few months. In college he had the entire offensive burden on him, had a 37.3 usage rate. You think if maybe he has a set role and doesn't have to taken ten awful shots every game maybe he'll be more efficient?
EZ 40% 3p shooter by his third season.
For how awful he's been, they've sure given him a lot of minutes and shots. So they must fairly well believe in him.
He has played 300 minutes and taken 100 shots. Hardly seems like a lot to me.
I mean, they drafted him at the top of the second round and immediately locked him up for four years. I'd say they like him. Unfortunately he has no role, they don't currently need a gunner off the bench and they can't afford to let him develop into one with regular minutes on a potential Finals contending team.
All these new guys need a little bit of time. They're not going to make it right off.
Especially behind a good team. They're just not going to get the minutes.
Of our 7 Total Rookies; we have about 5.5 promising players.
It's probable that all 7 remain in (or around) the NBA.
