Buddy Hield had a breakout 2018-19 season for the Sacramento Kings, and people are starting to take notice.

On the heels of his single-season franchise record of 278 3-pointers, Hield has been given a 90 rating for his 3-point shooting by the creators of NBA 2K20.

Hield ranks behind only Steph Curry, Klay Thompson and Joe Harris. JJ Redick also has a 90 rating.

Hield's 278 3-pointers last season were the fourth-most in the NBA behind James Harden's 378, Curry's 354 and Paul George's 292.

The rest of the country got to see what Hield had been working on during the 2019 NBA 3-point Contest at All-Star Weekend. Hield made it to the final round, only to finish behind Harris (winner) and Curry (runner-up).

But Hield isn't settling for fifth-best. He wants to be better and let that be known on Monday.

If Hield can improve on his 278 3-pointers and 42 percent from deep next season, the NBA 2K creators are sure to move him up in the rankings.
