Scott: Waiters Out Of Shape, Needs To Work On Defensive Technique
Dion Waiters is shooting 30 percent from the floor entering Thursday’s summer league game against the Timberwolves and has struggled at times defensively.
“The biggest thing with him is conditioning,” Scott said. “Once he gets in shape, all the other stuff will start to come.”
Scott believes Waiters needs to drop about 10 pounds as well as work on his defensive technique.
“He’s so used to zone [defense] the last couple of seasons that he stands around a lot on the defensive end,” Scott said. “We have to get him out of that. He has a ways to go in that department.”
