Re: Jimmy Buckets FA Thread

Dunleavy is cool with a bench role, though. That is basically what he signed up for 2 years ago when Luol Deng was here.

Dunleavy is definitely the Bulls' most consistent 3-pt shooter but Snell can be a good shooter too. That is why I say Snell's ability to start is 100% dependent on him improving his shooting consistency and confidence. He's flashed it and shot a very respectable 37% last year from 3-pt range.

Mirotic I am not worried about (yet). Alot of rookies need time to adjust to NBA 3-pt range. I can name countless examples of good, even great 3-pt shooters, who just didn't have a high 3-pt shooting percentage their rookie year. I'll be more concerned if he fails to improve his 2nd year and/or flattens out at 33% in his 3rd season (league average is 35% so hopefully he's at least that).
