One of the least talked about changes following the trade deadline has been the Dallas Mavericks' struggles shooting the ball, and this has to be something that changes over the offseason.

Although the Mavericks have changed the way they play and are rebounding much better and dominating down low, adding a knockdown shooter should be a priority. Tim Hardaway Jr.'s struggles as a shooter have been magnified as of late, and P.J. Washington has also been struggling as a shooter.

Someone the Mavs can consider drafting to be their shooter off the bench is Baylor Scheirman, and although he is 23 years old, using a late second-round pick on him wouldn't be a bad idea.

This season for Creighton, Scheirman is averaging 18.4 points, 9.0 rebounds, 4.0 assists, and 1.0 steals per game while shooting 37.4 percent from downtown on a mammoth 8.3 attempts per game. Scheirman is the definition of a shooter, and his high percentage along with his high volume tells you everything you need to know.

The left-handed sniper doesn't need much space to get his shot off and is a good movement shooter. He is a threat from anywhere around the arc and has deep range.

Other than shooting, Scheirman is also an underrated passer and has a high basketball IQ. He makes good decisions in transition and isn't someone who chucks bad shots.

Scheirman's 6-foot-7 frame would allow him to play the two or three in Dallas, but his defense hasn't been great. Although he uses his hands well and brings effort, his feet are slow.
