Derrick White’s shooting is saving the San Antonio Spurs from themselves

It was reported in the offseason that San Antonio Spurs combo guard Derrick White was locking himself in the gym to refine his three-point shot. As one of the few unanticipated additions to storied coach Gregg Popovich’s Team USA squad in the FIBA World Cup, White took a breakout sophomore campaign and built on it by adding to his game and learning from his peers.

His hard work is coming to fruition this season as the third-year player is up to 39.2% shooting on 2.4 triples per contest. This percentage is a 5.4% leap from what he finished with last year, albeit on fewer takes.
