Roberson is a fantastic defender and re-signing him was critical for OKC's chances next season. However, for $10 million per season, he has to do better than shooting 14% free throws in the playoffs, especially when coaches (like D'Antoni) commit to the hack-a-Dre strategy.

This past year he set the record for the lowest free throw percentage for a player with 20+ FTA in the playoff, which he now holds by a huge margin. (http://bkref.com/tiny/Djrca)

He's also holds the lowest career playoff FT% ever for a player with 40+ FTA. (http://bkref.com/tiny/FPWfz)

He should seriously consider spending a week or two with Rick Barry or his son Canyon to learn how to shoot free throws underhanded. If I were Presti, I would have stipulated that in his contract.

I love Roberson, and if he could just be a poor or below average shooter, something like he did in 2015-2016 when he shot 31.1% from 3P & 61.1% FT, he would be so much more of a weapon for the team.

With the current construction I see his offensive role returning to what it was toward the end of 2016 season and playoffs.

I also expect Adams to look much better with better spacing. Hopefully he won't be asked to pay lay off rebounding again. I don't think that is gonna happen though.

Agreed on your points on Roberson & Adams. I think less clogged lanes will make them both so much more effective on the offensive end.

If he can't improve his free throws through offseason, I fully expect to see granny free throws at least he'd likely hit 50% of those.
