Only a fool would believe that he'll come in this year with the tools to break out significantly..... he'd have to improve his ballhandling, shooting, defense, rebounding, effort, court awareness, passing, pump fakes.... heck even his spin move needs work and a counter move too. I think he'll come in improved, but he's not breaking out. He's slowly progressing though and should be able to become a solid two way player one day.....maybe this year even.

wait so since he was on the select team, does that mean he still practices with them? but doesn't get to play? or was he only involved in the tryout practices?

I don't know if someone has told him that he should improve his dribbling skills.

We can only hope for his birthday that God gave him the gift of a good mid range shot....or defensive ability ... or improved ball handling and rebounding skills.. or improved court awareness. really i'll take anything. Amen.

I have no problem with his mid range shot. Honestly if he can improve defensively I'll be a happy camper, I could live with his current offensively abilities as long as gains a bit of size and can take more contact. Imagine or back court defense with him and Lowry if Derozan at least be good, not great defensively, which in turn will help him and others get buckets by running the floor.

I have a problem with his mid-range shot. It looks good, has decent form, but rarely goes in (relative to other mid-range shots, anyway). Between 10 and 23 feet, he shot 34.6% last year. And only 37.9% from 10-15, so the long ones aren't exactly skewing that data (although he does attempt nearly 3 times as many inefficient 16-23 footers as 10-15 footers).

That's a below average 10-15 footer at the SG spot, sitting at 31st among shooting guards who play at least 15 minutes per game. And a significantly below average 16-23 footer at the SG spot, sitting at 43rd among shooting guards who play at least 15 minutes.
