‘This Summer I Improved the Most on My 3-Ball’



Anthony Davis says three-point shooting is the part of his game that saw the biggest improvement this summer.

Davis, 26, hopes to shoot โ€œin the hight 30sโ€ from beyond the arc next season.

The six-time NBA All-Star adds that, by stretching the floor, heโ€™ll give the Los Angeles Lakers an added weapon in their title chase.

Per Lakers.com:

Davis โ€” who scored more points in the paint last season (14.3) than anybody other than MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo (17.5) โ€” said during a Twitter Q&A for NBA 2K that his greatest offseason emphasis has been 3-point shooting.

โ€œThis summer I improved the most on my 3-ball. I wanted to be able to stretch the floor,โ€ Davis said.

โ€œAs a big, the game is definitely going that way now. โ€ฆ I for sure want to get that [percentage] in the high 30s. By me doing that Iโ€™ll be able to help the Lakers as much as possible โ€ฆ and hopefully win a championship.โ€

Bulls To Release Antonio Blakeney



The Bulls and Antonio Blakeney are parting ways, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic.

K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune previously reported that waiving Blakeney was a possibility for the Bulls. The team re-signed Shaq Harrison, who is a favorite of coach Jim Boylen, and that added another player to a crowded guard rotation. Chicago now has 15 players under contract.

Blakeney appeared in 76 games for the Bulls over past two seasons with 57 of those coming during the 2018-19 campaign. He scored 7.3 points per game last year and as Bullsโ€™ radio coordinator Jeff Mangurten point out, Blakeney had nearly as many field goal attempts (396) as passes (432) last season.
