I don't necessarily know that this is the case. I have no idea how many free throws he shoots, but it is probably mental for the most part...or something goofier like the yips. Either way, he has no shot at playing at the next level unless he fixes it.
He shot 55% last year. You can work on the mental aspects of free throw shooting also. He obviously hasn't work on either part. How do you get mentally tough for free throws? You run laps then shoot them. Once you show your body and head that you can shoot them even when you are tired, you believe in yourself. There is no reason for someone of his ability to shoot under 50%.
I also think this is something he needs to do over the off-season, not right now. But if he doesnt shoot at least 60% next year I think it really shows a lack of commitment to fine tuning his craft.
