News: Kanter said his focus this summer has been adding a three-point shot to his offensive repertoire, HoopsHype reports. "With the league changing, everybody has to be able to make three-point shots now," Kanter said. "That's why my focus this summer is my three-point shooting. When I talked to Brad Stevens, he told me he wanted me to shoot threes."
Impact: Kanter went on to note that Danny Ainge also spoke with him about expanding his range, so this appears to be a serious point of emphasis for the 27-year-old, who signed with the Celtics as a free agent. Kanter has attempted only 143 three-pointers in his NBA career, and while he's never taken more than 45 in a single season, he's a good bet to exceed that number -- and likely by a wide margin -- in 2019-20 with Boston in need of a replacement for Al Horford. A career 29.4 percent shooter from outside, the expected increase in volume may not end up being a strength for Kanter's fantasy profile, but his made threes could be an asset in leagues that don't value percentages.
