Will Simmons and Ayton Shoot from Distance?

Updated On: July 21, 2020, 10:05 am ET

Ben Simmons has gone 2-for-6 on 3s during the 2019-20 season. (As a reminder, this is what it looks like when he attempts — and makes — a triple.)

By comparison, Deandre Ayton (0-for-7 in his career) makes Simmons (2-for-23) look like a high-volume gunner. 

So is there any reason to put stock in recent reports that Simmons and Ayton could both shoot more 3s when the NBA gets back underway next week?

On the latest episode of the Rotoworld Fantasy Basketball Podcast, Dr. A joins me to discuss the outlook for both players in Orlando, plus some good news for Russell Westbrook, bad news for Marvin Bagley — and a glaring oversight of Nemanja Bjelica.
