Kris Dunn 2018-2019 Season Thread

Recommended Posts

I'm an owner so I will show my bias, but I projected and read many projections for 3s being a part of this guy's game going into the 2018 season. 

 

I'm pretty bummed when I see 0 3 attempts on the night. I guess the projections were wrong and he's not going to try to incorporate the 3 into his game?

I'm not sure how you can be "bummed" when he fills up literally every other category including much improved fg% in this small sample size.  If he started taking 3pm and missing, then you would probably be on here complaining about his fg%.

This is true.

This is also true.

 

(I literally "liked" one comment after the other.)

I've been trying to watch Bulls games since he came back and I really don't think we should be expecting many 3s this season. He 's been looking to get to his spots and shoot from mid-range, which has been surprisingly much more respectable than I thought. He isn't looking to shoot from long range at all, in fact the only 3 I've seen him take (and make) was at the end of the shot clock.

 

Overall I've been extremely impressed by his mid-range game, and although the lack of 3s may be disappointing, he has been a much more efficient player than I would have expected. If he can continue to shoot 45%+ with above average assists and stocks, then I would be quite pleased with the results, regardless of the 3 point shooting.

I'll be honest with you. I don't really care about your team or your team build and how this works out great for you. 

 

I proposed a question. Do we assume 3s are not going to be incorporated into his game this year? 

 

That's what I was looking for. Talks about that. I read he was a shooter going into the season, so I just assumed 3s would be attempted, but I can obviously read a box score and see it's not really something he's working on. 

 

I guess my attempt to find feedback from those who study him more has failed. Congrats on your team build though.

He is not a high percentage 3 point shooter so I wouldn’t expect him to attempt many going forward, especially given the ability he’s shown lately to get to his spots in the mid range and knock down those shots consistently.

Is he taking less 3pters??? It would explain his good fg so far. You pick ur poison, bad fg or bad 3’s and I’m liking his good fg as 3pters are easier to find somewhere else

Teague is now the worst PG I roster haha. Agreed, this is why I held and stash Dunn and drafted him in the 8th over guards like DLO.

3s will not be incorporated into his game this year, as he shot like 32 percent from the 3 last year and has shown no improvement since.

3s are probably now the easiest stat to pick up off the wire, don't see it as a huge weakness.

 

Give me 3 good names to pick up then and I'll let you know they're already owned

In my 10 team league there are a dozen guys averaging at least 2.0 threes per game on the wire.  Guys like Wesley Matthews, Ellington, and Harris are universally available (ESPN).  They won't help elsewhere but there are always going to be three point specialists who can help in that category.

Matthews and Harris been owned all season. Ellington been pushed out of the rotation and looks pretty worthless to me, probably why he was dropped and not picked up.

Reggie Bullock? Allan Crabbe? If you're in a 10 team league and these buffoons are owned, you should join another league

Anyone have an idea of usage numbers  or predictions with and without Lavine.I’m trying to decide if I should throw some Dunn offers out there.

Owned. And never said I was in a 10 team league. 

 

Bullock had close to 20 3s last week. I don't think the guy that owned him and won 3s is a buffoon myself.

Obviously the situation will get worse when Lavigne returns, but who you gonna sell him high for. 

 

I'd think that nearly everyone with knowledge of the basketball landscape can see that coming, but that's not to say his value won't be there, cause I think it will. It just won't be this. Zach is a high volume and high usage guy, when those guys are on the court it's natural for those that were absorbing the usage to take a hit.
