I'm definitely encouraged with Trezz continuing to focus on his jump shot.

Last time I was at Staples I went there early for the pregame warm-ups (shout out to cbrown32 for getting me good seats to watch it) and got to see Trez being the first to start working out and the last to leave for the locker room. He spent a lot of time working on shooting contested threes, open threes, from the corner, top of the arc, etc. and two things grabbed my attention: dude took every miss to heart like his life was ending, and he was swishing an unexpected amount of them.

This was the season before this one, when he was still not playing much, and it surprised me a lot that he was this hard working and that he had a jump shot. We still haven't seen a lot of it in game, but he can consistently add a jump shot and keeps improving defensively, he might become a special player.

For one thing, he could play some 4 and leave some spacing for a legit 5. At the moment he can only play the 5, but at 6'8", you just can't run him out there against the Embiids and other legit centers.
