Austin Rivers FG% watch...


now 1 of 13 on the season, a sizzling 7% that would make even James Posey blush.

He's definitely capable. It'll take some time, probably another offseason, but he'll be fine. When he gets stronger he'll be a much better finisher.

He is not very good at basketball. clearly. Good thing we didn't pass on Royce White, Jeremy Lamb, Tony Wroten, Andrew Nicholson, Perry Jones III, etc.

I just want to see the guy handle the ball for more than 3 seconds without thinking he's about to turn it over. I know he's young and small but his play has literally been some of the worst I have seen in the NBA in a while.

I really dont know what his deal is. I thought he was a shooter in college? Did he just forget how to do it in the pros?

He needs to learn to pass the ball when attacking the basket.

He's only a rookie. It was expected that he'd struggle a bit at first. He's played good defense and he'll get better on offense with time.

Don't get me wrong, he's been pretty awful. I just think he'll be pretty solid down the line.
