One of the Cleveland Cavaliers’ three best 2020-21 off-movement shooters: Dylan Windler

We haven’t seen Dylan Windler for the Cleveland Cavaliers yet at this point due to complications involving a stress reaction in his left leg. Granted, it appears now that Windler could reportedly make an appearance for Cleveland in 2019-20, if the Cavs do have more game action. That’s again, likely not going to happen, though.

Anyway, looking at next season, I firmly believe after he gets more comfortable, Windler could prove to be Cleveland’s most dangerous off-movement shooter.

The 6-foot-6 wing is really polished off-the-catch and hit 40.6 percent of his three-point attempts in a four-year career at Belmont, which included a 42.9 percent hit rate as a senior on 7.1 attempts per outing, per Sports Reference.

That was absolutely not NBA competition, but Windler has a quick release and smooth stroke, and that should translate. He should prove to be a big-time perimeter shooter via relocation/and subtle movements off-ball and coming off pin-downs/getting looks after getting to spots after flare screens, and Windler could be lethal and help the Cavs in a big way as a floor spacer as a result.

Along with that, I’d think with Windler’s off-movement ability, he should draw his share of fouls from hard closeouts, and he should be a quality pull-up threat from coming around curls as well.

Last but not least, the Cavs’ best overall shooter for now is one that’d I’d expect to be the other clear best off-movement player for them next season.
