Buddy Hield 2018-2019 Outlook


Recommended Posts

The great thing about Buddy's game right now is it seems like he and the team have fully embraced shooting the 3-ball a lot more. Kings are/were top in the NBA in 3PT FG% but were bottom 10 in 3PA per game for much of the year, but the past 10 or so games they've collectively started shooting the 3 way more.


During this stretch, Buddy is averaging 4.8 3PM on 10.5 3PA. This has all led to him averaging 24.4 PPG. There really is no reason for Buddy not to keep shooting so many 3's. Steph Curry is the only other player who has a higher FG% from 3PT with this kind of volume

I think he is playing D, he just plays under control more. More focused. He doesn't gamble, just plays straight up solid D. It leads to not getting steals, but better defensive outprint -> he gets more minutes.
