I am pretty curious about this. The Cavs are going to go from being one of the worst 3pt shooting teams last year to be being very respectable or even great 3pt shooters. I like the idea of Cedi possibly being 4th or 5th worst instead of best 3pt shooter in the starting lineup.

Garland and Windler both seem to already have NBA range, and look very mature as shooters for rookies. Seeing Windler in summer league makes me think he could be one of those very top level shooters. He can take them from anywhere and going either direction. Both rooks seem to have crazy range. That is exciting.

Love is Love. We know what to expect. One thing is for sure though. Spacing begets more spacing. When he came back from injury last year, both Collin and Cedi became better shooters too. That extra space gave them more room to breathe and shoot. Watching Cedi as the only guy willing to shoot from 3 at the beginning of the year was brutal.

I think Collin is going to lead the squad in 3pt% this year. He really killed it on the catch and shoot last season all year. I think the front office was really encouraged by him playing off the ball and Garland is going to handle it a lot. To me that equals a lot of catch and shoot opportunities for Collin, both from Garland and from Love passing it back out. I think both Windler and Garland are capable of beating him, but I think they are going to take harder shots.

Good thread.
Why don't I see a vote for Collin then?

Depends on how many attempts we are going to cap these guys at, but I'm going to say Windler.

Dude probably has the most pure stroke on the team.

Love the thread Cavatt. Beilein wanted this team to have shooters and we have plenty now.

I love Garland as a shooter but I believe Sexton will have a better percentage because he can hit wide open shots and is working his game to even shoot farther out and making it consistently this offseason.

Will definitely be interesting to look upon as season goes by and really cannot wait till the season to start.

Difficulty of shots will very likely be a determining factor here.

The dynamic that really makes me think that Colin and Garland can coexist is that they can both really shoot the 3 off the catch and off the dribble. That is pretty rare when you think about it from your lead guards, and it is one reason Lowry and Van Fleet were so dangerous as well as the oft discussed Portland duo.

Windler seems to have that Delly type IQ where he rarely makes a bad play or a mistake. If he can continue to shoot it like he did in summer league, it is going to be hard to keep him off the floor. He does seem to have that Curry release where he is powering it up through his body so he gets a lot of power behind it and can shoot from anywhere.

One thing I saw in a scouting video on Garland. They talked about how much he uses his legs and how balance is super important to his shot. That's why it looked so effortless. They were saying that he will be more easily knocked off balance than other guys. That is what I always thought about Boobie Gibson. If they closed him out hard and he tried to adjust, it was unlikely to go in. Wide open shots were swishes.

doubt it will be a rookie, I expect Sexton to take more which will probably lead to a lower %, wont be Love... think Cedi if he has learnt to not take dumb ones, being his third season i think he will have

That's a really good question.

I expect Sexton to drop off from his historically good shooting, a bit. Garland's stroke is a thing of beauty but I think he will take some time adjusting to the physicality. I don't have a ton of confidence in Cedi's shot.

Love will probably hover around 37-38% - can Windler or Sexton top that?

I'll go with Windler because why not.

Garland is probably the best shooter on the team. Maybe Windler is right there...but rookies are hit/miss in that respect. Garlands shots will have a much higher degree of difficulty as well as a much higher volume. If % is the ONLY thing we're taking into consideration, I think it is probably Sexton. I think he will again be a 40% 3 pt shooter, with the potential to even tick that up to 42+% given he should be taking a lot more off ball, catch& shoot threes.

Windler is a guy I could see shooting in the mid 40s from deep, especially if he's careful with his shot selection. However, as a rookie with so many new things he will had to get used to and adjust to...plus a brand new offense nobody on the team has ran, and the two lead guards being seen as shoot-first types...plus him simply not quite being physically ready yet for a long tough NBA season. I think he will be somewhat up and down throughout the year as his stamina gets tested. Think he can be one of the elite catch& shoot guys in this league for many years but could see him in the 36-38% range.


In the end: Really close between Sexton and Garland, give Sexton the nod in % because he is a 2nd year guy, and he will play much more off ball and take easier shots. Garland is going to bomb threes from day 1. It will be one of the most important parts of his game. I could see him struggle to acclimate for a short period of time and then get his footing and go on a complete tear like Trae Young did. I think it's basically a guarantee he is a definitely really good/probably great/ potentially elite shooter in the NBA so if he shoots poorly out of the gate for the first 20 or so games I wouldn't worry too much about it.

of the best shooters we have from 3 ,Windler should have the lowest attempt rate and so I assume his % will be the highest overall

We have an All-Star who's shooting 39% from 3 and 88% from the line over the last three seasons. Why aren't more people voting for him?

he is likely to attempt 7+ a game so unless he turns into Steph he is probably gonna shoot around 35-36%

He is great, but only broke 40% 2 years. That's one more year than Sexton.

I do think he takes quick shots as a trailer. It isn't bad, he should take those shots as the first option.
