SA Spurs: Ranking who should shoot the most threes in '21-22
In the 2020-2021 regular season, the San Antonio Spurs were dead last in the league in three-point shots attempted, second to last in three-pointers made, and seventh-worst in the league in three-point percentage. That Spurs team was filled to the brim with a few of the best isolation midrange scorers in the game and the numbers clearly reflected that.
Being that the team struggled to shoot the three-ball so badly, though, floor spacing was a persistent issue for the team throughout the season that ultimately limited their impact both in the midrange and near the bucket. Going into the offseason, improving the team's impact from beyond the arc was one of the front office's top priorities.
Thankfully, it seems that Brian Wright was able to dramatically improve the team's potential from three. Even with the departure of Patty Mills and Rudy Gay, who were both among the team's most efficient three-point shooters last season, the Spurs' new free agency acquisitions and the young core will have the opportunity to make their presence felt.
The goal of this list is to rank (from lowest to highest) who the Spurs' most frequent three-point shooters should be in their upcoming season. Now that the team has reloaded with several new shooting threats from deep, the Spurs will need to be smart about who is taking the shots in order to maximize their efficiency. For the team to see success and have any chance of reaching the postseason, these four players will need to be their most reliable three-point snipers.
