K.J. McDaniels
SG/SF, 6’6, 205lbs, 24 years old, 3 years of experience

Capable of good ball pressure and plenty of deflections defensively, but has a tendency to get lost and miss cutters off the ball. Still not a good outside shooter, although the .556% true shooting percentage is very much a career high, helped by much improved finishing at the rim. On the Nets right now, McDaniels is probably in the right sort of place for the right sort of price, but he certainly does not have a stranglehold on the defensive wing specialist role.

Player Plan: Has had a team option for $3,746,873 declined, thus entering free agency. Money and the cap situation are not exactly a problem, yet McDaniels has not earned anything beyond the minimum, so he should probably have the Bird rights kept and hopefully be brought back on a smaller salary.
