   2017 NBA Manifesto

Doug McDermott
SF, 6’8, 225lbs, 25 years old, 3 years of experience

By any measure, McDermott is a good shooter. But it seems he is not an especially confident one. Given that shooting is what he is in the game for - he is not a handler, a rebounder, much of a defender, or a post-up player at this level - he ought to at least cast them up. Especially on this Thunder team who needed this more than anyone. But McDermott’s volume of shots was low, and his inconsistency quite stark. His future in the league is as a shooter, and at this volume only, it’s not much of a future.

Player Plan: One year of rookie scale salary left. Extension eligible, but unlikely considering his limited output and limited upside. Let him play it out and prove himself, or not, then re-evaluate.
