All Defense, No Shooting Team

  • Guys who are fantastic defenders, but can't shoot a lick. 3pt% listed unless otherwise specified. Most of the time, defenders with a small offensive role are good spot up 3pt shooters, but these guys are No3&D players, or guys with a limited or unusual offensive role, while playing great defense. Some guys have a very defined skill that the right system can utilize (passing for Draymond, offensive rebounding for Steven Adams, etc). Some seem totally lost on offense (Ben Simmons, Matisse Thybulle, etc). Can the Bucks find roles for such players, or does Every player with Giannis (himself a great defender who can't shoot) need to be at least a solid 3pt shooter?
