Everyone knows the game of basketball is evolving, and shooting from beyond the arc has never been more important. 


It isn't just Ben Simmons who is working on his long-range game. Big men are now required to shoot if they're going to stay on the court at all times, which means you have to adapt and become a stretch forward or get used to being comfortable on the bench. 


That's exactly why Greg Monroe is pushing back his range. 

​​Considering how poorly he's been at shooting, he looks pretty comfortable from deep right now.


Monroe has been in the league eight seasons but has never been reliable from long range. In fact, he hasn't hit a 3-pointer in his entire career on just 12 total attempts from deep. He's not expected to be a marksman by any means, but developing an ability to shoot would certainly allow him to see more time on the court next season. 

As it stands, Monroe is buried on Toronto's depth chart behind Jonas Valanciunas, Serge Ibaka, and Pascal Siakam. But if Monroe can bring what we saw in that video to the court for the regular season, we could see a lot more of The Moose on the floor in Toronto.
