We're building an army

Blake Hinson (@Pitt_MBB) is hitting 43% from 3. He's taking a high volume too, 8.5 3s per game.

Complete, entire, and exhaustive list of ACC players to take that many, and make that high a percentage, since 1993:
• Blake Hinson
• JJ Redick

Blake can score from 3, and found this;

On the offensive end he is a pure scorer, so in the passing and playmaking department he leaves a lot to be desired. Though it is not his game, Hinson has never averaged over 1.4 assists per contest in his four-year college career. He works mainly off-ball and relies on his guards to playmake, so the skill set of creating for others is not a trait of Hinson’s. On the other side of the ball, the defense leaves some room for improvement. The forward has never averaged more than 0.6 steals or 0.5 blocks. For someone who is 6-foot-8 and possesses great length, it will be interesting to see if the lack of productivity on the defensive end is a knock on him as a prospect.

Last year they picked up an undersized KCP clone. This looks like an XL Discount Buddy Hield.

I remember when they picked up a UDFA named Reaves. I'm giving the guy a shot.

Selfish chuckers shoot 32-33% from three on high volume.

Hinson shoots 42% from three on 8 attempts per game.
Also made more triples than anybody in the ACC




Cole Swider? No.. more like Danny Green.

Fits into a mold JJ would want to utilize.

Look like a bigger Wesley Matthews...

24 years old might be able to get a roster spot at 6'8.

His height + high volume shooting ability if he shoots relatively well in the Summer League and pre-season he'll definitely have a staying spot. His style is essentially the kind Redick SHOULD know how to maximize.

There's like a 99% chance he doesn’t make the league like any other undrafted player. Would be nice if he did but maybe we should keep expectations realistic.

I meant mostly that he was a closer comparison than Cole.

But okay. Malik Beasley.

Like Hachimura's. But he could be an even better one with his size and length.
