Ricky Rubio says he’s been in the gym working on his 3-point shot this summer.
Practicing 3-pointers and gaining/losing 15 pounds are common offseason statements from players so we’ll believe it when we see it. It should be noted that he was able to shoot 47 percent from the field in the month of March and 43.9 percent from beyond the arc. The lack of threes and low field goal percentage are always going to be blemishes on his game and even if he isn’t able to hit threes at a consistent clip he’ll still be an elite source of assists and steals. Rubio produced at a top-50 value last year. His game and situation are both fantasy friendly so expect him to produce at the same level or better next year.
