How D’Angelo Russell Can Take the Next Step as an Offensive Player

Coming into the NBA, D’Angelo Russell was given high expectations as a player, and that is reasonable considering how he was the second overall pick in the 2015 NBA draft. However, before he can emerge as a reliable high-volume scorer, he is going to have to improve his efficiency as a scorer. Russell saw improvement in his volume statistics going from his rookie season to his sophomore year.

Rookie Averages: 28.2 minutes, 13.2 points (41 percent FG, 35.1 percent 3P, 73.7 percent FT), 3.4 rebounds, 3.3 assists, 1.2 steals, 0.2 blocks, and 2.5 turnovers.
