Default CNNSI: NBA Players Looking To Rebound

We've got 2 listed in their list. JO and Andrea.

Andrea Bargnani

The No. 1 pick in the 2006 draft regressed in his second season, with declines in scoring (10.2 ppg), shooting (38.6 percent overall, 34.5 percent from three-point range) and rebounding (3.7) while playing 24 minutes a game as a part-time starter. The Raptors have talked about possibly playing the 7-footer at small forward in a big lineup alongside Chris Bosh and newcomer Jermaine O'Neal. Regardless of position or role, Bargnani needs to improve in Year 3 for the Raptors to realize their potential.
