Devon shoots when open and is fine at making open 3's

but is not a volume guy or a guy that gets his shot off quick and can shoot contested 3's. He's also not going to get to the line like Allen because he doesn't finish half as well as a guy like Allen. Defenders know just to play Devon's left hand and they aren't going to foul him until he proves that he can consistently penetrate/finish.

I think we'll have more offensive threats to work with but I would stop well short of assuming that we'll have 4 "legit" scorers on the floor at all times.. for stretches last year w/ many of the same guys we had 0. If we start Wilkins/Salt/Hall we'll basically have 2-3.. and I fully expect Jerome/Guy to go through growing pains before becoming reliable scorers, but at least they'll space the floor. We need one of Mamadi/Huff on the floor most of the time imo, we can't have two bigs on the court that defenses can ignore (and this is assuming that MD can find a consistent offensive weapon, and that Huff is even ready to play ACC basketball)

I expect TB to have to experiment a lot to figure out what our best lineups are. I expect the younger guys to have good games.. and some really bad games.. as they figure out what their roles are and how they can contribute on a nightly basis. I honestly hope we have some adversity early on and are forced to think outside of the box w/ lineups and offensive schemes. I look forward to seeing what we turn into by the end of the year. Tons of potential but tons of "?"

  We were actually a great 3pt shooting team last year -- crossedsabres8 09/13/2017 10:42AM
