The De'Aaron Fox FT Dilemma

De'Aaron Fox had a big night on Thursday, scoring 29 points with 11 dimes while knocking down 8-of-10 from the free throw line.

That last part of his stat line has been all too rare, as Fox over his previous nine games was shooting 60.4 percent from the line — and is sitting at a career-worst 68.2 percent on the season (on 6.5 attempts per game).

In terms of fantasy, he's been one of the biggest drains on free throw percentage of any player in the league this season, and it presents a legitimate dilemma for those who drafted Fox without a punt strategy in mind.

Ryan Knaus joins me to discuss that on the latest episode of Roundball Stew, while also looking at recent shooting slumps for Jayson Tatum and Buddy Hield.
