What they need to improve on

The shooting guard group as a whole does not have anything they need to work on just some individual improvements.

Gary Harris shot fantastic from mid-range last year as he shot 46.4-percent from 3-10 feet, 42.9-percent from 10-16 feet and 32.2 percent from 16 feet to the 3-point line.

Jalen Suggs and R.J. Hampton did not shoot as well from mid-range and need to improve on that.

Suggs and Hampton’s ability to get to the basket stops them from shooting a lot of mid-range shots but they need to become more effective when they do shoot from the mid-range.

Suggs and Hampton are in a lot of pick-and-roll situations so they need to be able to improve their pull-up jump shot and shot off the dribble.

Hampton and Harris are each good three-point shooters, but Suggs needs to make a big jump in his second year if he wants to be a legit three-point threat for the Magic.

Harris needs to have fewer turnovers for the time he has the ball, but Hampton and Suggs did a good job of controlling the ball as they handle the ball more than Harris does.

With some player development by the Magic, this shooting guard trio could be one of the most dangerous shooting guard groups in the whole entire league.

Next. Orlando Magic are already experimenting with lineups. dark

They are all young and improving so look for them to make strides every season. There are no additions needed to be made just self-improvement for these shooting guards to shake the whole league. Magic fans, be excited for what’s to come of these shooting guards.
