if he could work on catch and shoot... he'll be a star. He has to be able to come off the screens and shoot. He was really reluctant to do that so he was often easy to cover.
He wasn't good shooting off of the dribble either. What he excelled at was shooting a set shot from a spot on the 3-point line. He can build from that and hopefully add some more pieces to his game. Saw him do some nice things moving to the hoop a couple of times, but he seemed reluctant to drive. He also played out of position at power forward a lot last year (even with Seth's "4 out" offense where the power forward pops in and out of the paint to shoot it, he was still having to work inside when he's really a perimeter player). He also has the benefit of knowing that he's the starting SF this season and won't be sharing time with DFS or playing out of position. That can definitely boost a player's confidence.
