Our skill category rankings continue with part one of our breakdowns of the best shooters in this draft class. To me, shooting efficacy needs to be broken down into two different realms. Catch-and-shoot and movement. Both require different strengths, different form and can't be evaluated the same. Some players have great muscle memory for stationary shooting, but don't have the hip fluidity or proper footwork to be used off screens.
Evaluation of the players on this list include those traits, as well as the effectiveness of their makes in this area. Movement shooters become elite when their movements create gravity for teammates, so there's certainly importance to this area beyond simply making shots.
