The offseason is about putting in work to improve individually, which can lead to positive results for the player and for the team.

Philadelphia 76ers guard Tyrese Maxey had a solid rookie season in which he showed an impressive ability to take defenders off the dribble and get to the basket. His efficiency improved as the season went on, and the next step in his development is to add more of a perimeter shot to his game.

In two games in the summer league, Maxey showed a willingness to take more 3-pointers off the dribble and off screens from his teammates. Now, he is back in the gym with trainer Chris Johnson continuing to add that shooting aspect to his offensive game.

Maxey shot 30.1% from deep as a rookie on 1.7 attempts per game. If he can improve that percentage to around 35%, the Sixers would greatly benefit.
