3. Duncan Robinson, Miami Heat
Stats: 45% on 7 3PA
The return is amongst us. Duncan Robinson is more than back! He's added multiple layers to his game, including a tighter handle. Robinson is attacking the rack more than ever; only 61% of his shots are 3-pointers. He's never had a season under 80%. Robinson is a much well-rounder threat, but he's still the sniper that put the world on notice during the 2020 season.
Robinson had a down year a season ago but stepped up in the postseason. That momentum has carried over. He's undeniably one of the best shooters in the league.
Robinson is a versatile shooter who garnered the respect of coaches throughout the league. It's safe to bet he's at the top of scouting reports as the "shooter." Due to his reputation, defenders close out recklessly, and he continues to make them pay.
Robinson remains a dribble hand-off threat and has expanded his game with off-the-dribble threes. He's shooting 51.1% on pull-up 3-point jumpers. He's an elite shooter who should be in the Most Improved conversation sooner rather than later.
