D’Angelo Russell told Basketball Insiders that he spent additional time working on floaters and his ability to finish around the rim.
The mid-range game is vital for any offensive player to figure out as it opens up so many different options and that’s where the floater comes in. And once you get past the defense you need to be able to finish, and nonetheless this isn’t really news but an excuse to talk about Russell’s fantasy value. He could easily finish with late-round value in 9-cat leagues, but he has a strong chance at mid-round value in 8-cat leagues and if everything clicked perfectly he could be a top-50 player.
