Starter Projections for 2015-16 and offseason training goals

Projections for starters next year, and what I think they need to get better at during the offseason.

Rudy

Per game projections for 2015-16

Points : 12

Rebounds: 13

Assists: 2

Steals: 1

Blocks: 3

Things to work on in the offseason

1. A reliable hook shot that he could hit at 50% by the end of the season.

2. A bully post move for backing down smaller players if the other team switches or goes small ball.

3. Improve his free throw percentage to 70%.

Favors

Per game stats for 2015-16

Points : 18

Rebounds: 10

Assists: 2

Steals: 1

Blocks: 2

Things to work on in the offseason

1. Improve his midrange game, hitting at least 45% from 3 to 10 feet.

2. Improve free throw percentage to 70%.

Hayward

Per game stats for 2015-16

Points : 20

Rebounds: 5

Assists: 4

Steals: 2

Blocks: 0.5

Things to work on in the offseason

1. Work on the iso-handle and passing. Reduce the open-floor turnovers.

Burks

Per game stats for 2015-16

Points : 14

Rebounds: 4

Assists: 3

Steals: 1

Blocks: 0

Things to work on in the offseason

1. Defense. Be able to stay in front of point guards, fight through screens to defend 3-point shooters, and have sufficient strength to handle post-ups against small forwards.

2. Finishing at the rim. Last year was a serious step back for Burks, likely due to the shoulder injury. Getting back to his earlier form would be great.

Exum

Per game stats for 2015-16

Points : 8

Rebounds: 2.5

Assists: 4.5

Steals: 1

Blocks: 0

Things to work on in the offseason.

1. Strength and conditioning.

2. Reduce turnovers on bad passes.

3. Driving to the rim and looking to finish first, pass second.

4. Improving his 3 point shot.



What would you assign as the key offseason improvements for the projected starting lineup?
