Jerome’s opportunities have not always been consistent in our four-year career in the NBA to this point, so that has played into some ups and downs for him as a three-point shooter. Through four years, he’s hit 35.2 percent of his three-point shot attempts, which have been 3.1 attempts per outing.
Last season, Jerome did make his presence felt as a catch-and-shoot player for the Warriors, though, and if given chances with Cleveland, he could care that over. He shot 38.9 percent from three-point land in the 2022-23 campaign with Golden State, which was a positive sign, but Jerome did so on a limited 2.0 attempts per contest.
In the two prior seasons with the Oklahoma City Thunder, Jerome shot 29.0 percent and previously 42.3 percent from downtown, on 3.9 and 5.1 attempts per game. That was in 48 and 33 appearances, respectively.
As was mentioned, if given regular chances in Cleveland’s rotation, Jerome could be a quality shooter to look to for stretches from three-point range, particularly off-ball. And while the volume probably wouldn’t account for a bunch of his attempts from beyond the arc, Jerome could take advantage at times from there in pick-and-roll situations, and/or with rhythm dribbles to counter hard closeouts here and there.
If Jerome can knock down 40.0 percent or so of his rotational deep ball tries, that’d likely indicate he’s meshing well with other Cavaliers in his minutes this coming season.
