The Bulls finished last season's 22-win campaign ranked 19th in 3-point field goal percentage (35.1%), which was slightly below the league average of 35.5%.
They were led by Otto Porter (2.6 triples per game) and Lauri Markkanen (2.3 triples per game), while Porter (48.8%), Antonio Blakeney (40.0%) and Zach LaVine (37.4%) were their most accurate sharpshooters.
And after one of the wildest NBA free agencies in recent memory, the Bulls will enter the 2019-20 season tied for the fourth most 3-point shooters who made above the league average last season.
Random Stat of the Day - 129 players shot better than league average (35.5%) on at least 100 3PA last season. Here's how many of those guys each team has after summer movement. pic.twitter.com/KVFuSRxsz2— John Schuhmann (@johnschuhmann) August 2, 2019
The Bulls retained all four of their players who fit the bill:
Otto Porter: 40.6% on 256 attempts
Zach LaVine: 37.4% on 321 attempts
Ryan Arcidiacono: 37.3% on 217 attempts
Lauri Markkanen: 36.1% on 332 attempts
(Blakeney only attempted 91 3-pointers, so he doesn't qualify for this stat)
The Bulls also added two free agents who qualify:
Tomas Satoransky: 39.5% on 162 attempts
Luke Kornet: 36.3% on 193 attempts
For what it's worth, Thaddeus Young just missed the cut shooting 34.9% on 51 of 146 shooting. Had he made just one more 3-pointer, his percentage would have risen to 35.6% and he would have given the Bulls seven such players, tied for the most of any team.
Also, Denzel Valentine missed all of last season but in 2018 shot 38.6% on 370 attempts. He's certainly an x-factor on the wing.
It remains to be seen how the Bulls will shoot it in 2020, but they're certainly putting a host of capable players on the floor to do so.
