Nerlens Noel said he's working on his 15-foot jumper this preseason.
|He probably wants to work on his set shot from 15 feet because he only made 52.9 percent at the line at Kentucky and was right around that mark at summer league. Noel scored the vast majority of his buckets around the rim, so there will be some growing pains with his offensive arsenal. He could be worth a mid-round pick in fantasy drafts, but his percentages will likely be sub-par.|

|He played a lot of stretch four in Houston, so it's not a surprise. "I just think strength was the biggest [challenge] for me," Parsons said. "Offensively, it's just as tough for them guarding me when I take it out, pick-and-pop and do stuff like that." He is likely going to be a big part of the offense, but the Houston system was almost tailor made for his style. Still, Parsons is worth a look in the early-middle rounds.|
