The Dallas Mavericks are still six weeks away from training camp beginning, but the team is already getting to work. Luka Doncic is currently with the Slovenian National Team preparing for EuroBasket and the upcoming World Cup qualifiers. The rest of the roster is spread throughout the world, but all of them are back working on their craft.

The Mavs posted a video of Dorian Finney-Smith working on his jumper on Aug. 13, and he did not miss. Fans may remember, part of the reason Doe-Doe went undrafted back in 2016 was his lack of shooting. The 6’7 forward shot under 30 percent from 3-point range in each of his first two NBA seasons, which makes his rise even more incredible.

Will Finney-Smith improve his 3-point percentage for the seventh straight season? Can he shoot over 40 percent from long range this year? Here is a look at the video before diving in on what to expect this season.

Dorian Finney-Smith continues to work on his jumper: Will he hit over 40 percent from 3 this season?

MFFLs know that Finney-Smith has transformed into an elite 3-point shooter. He shot the 29th best percentage in the NBA last season, and his jumper looks better than ever in his latest training video.

Doe-Doe is the first player in NBA history to improve his 3-point percentage in each of his first six NBA seasons. Can he make it seven straight? 

Fans should bet on it. He was two makes away from shooting over 40 percent from 3-point range for the first time in his career, and the day is coming. Finney-Smith has become an elite floor spacer and defender since arriving in Dallas, and he remains one of the most underrated players in the NBA.

His pull-up jumpers are something to watch next season. Doe-Doe shot 40.1 percent on catch and shoot 3-pointers, a number that should only rise next season, but he was just eight of 28 on pull-ups. The 29-year-old needs to improve there if he wants to finish north of 40 percent for the season.

Fans should expect the best version of Dorian Finney-Smith next season. The 6’7 wing keeps improving his game, and he has zero plans of stopping now, so be sure to tune in and enjoy.
