Lonzo Ball will work on, but not alter, his shot.
This comes from team president Magic Johnson and GM Rob Pelinka, according to Ball. They also told him that he must get stronger as he was forced to miss 30 games this year with multiple injuries. As for the 36.0 percent shooting from the field and 45.1 percent from the line, Magic Johnson believes it's more about his feet than his touch, "…when he was missing, he was off-balance or he rushed it. I told him to watch a lot of film on those two things. When his feet come too close together he is off-balance." We're not sure if that advice will help his free throws however. Aside from his dreadful shooting percentages, Ball put up incredible numbers for a rookie with 10.2 points, 7.2 assists, 6.9 rebounds, 1.7 steals and 0.8 blocks, good for top-80 per-game value and top-20 if you punt both percentages. You should certainly at least punt one of them if you draft him next season.
