Strengths

Hot Shooting from Distance

Since his arrival, Stauskas has shot a ridiculous 46.1 percent from three. Is this sustainable? Probably not. However in Kenny Atkinson‘s spread offense, he will see a number of open looks. The Canadian is shooting a solid 40.1 percent on open shots (defender within 4-6 feet) and a scorching 51.9 percent on wide open looks (no defender within 6 feet). Get him open and there’s a high possibility its going down.
