Stay the same: Elite shooter

Herro’s best weapon is his jumper. He is a career 38.3 percent 3-point shooter who can do it off the bounce or the catch. The 6’5 guard has a pretty stroke and a fast release. He took a career-high 8.0 3-pointers per game last season, but there is room for more.

Herro has proven to be an elite catch-and-shoot marksman by making 40.8 percent of his 797 3-point attempts in his first four seasons. He has shot a strong but significantly worse 35.7 percent on his pull-up triples over 760 attempts.

Tyler Herro’s jumper is not going anywhere. He will be an elite shooter for the next 15 years, but how impactful will it be? If the 23-year-old can start taking more off the catch, he could shoot over 40 percent from 3-point range for the season.

His team might steal some tricks from the Warriors in creating open looks. Herro can certainly knock them down at a high clip after shooting 45.8 percent over 142 wide-open threes last season. Give him space and put three points on the board.

Tyler Herro is an impactful offensive weapon with room to grow, but his defense limits his ceiling. How can he quickly improve on that end of the floor to make his shooting more valuable?
