The Philadelphia 76ers worked to improve their perimeter shooting during the offseason.

The 76ers want to give Andrew Bynum room to operate with as few double teams as possible.

Doug Collins estimated that the Sixers averaged about 30 points split between free throws and three-pointers last season.

Collins wants that number to increase in 12-13.

"We'd like to get that to 40, plus 10 from where we were we last season," Collins said Friday. "We think we can average seven or eight threes a game, which would be huge for us."

Jason Richardson and Nick Young are two of the 76ers' new perimeter threats.

"It's going to open the game up, especially since we have a post person like Andrew," Richardson said of Bynum. "It's going to be very similar to what it was like for me playing in Orlando last year. We had Dwight [Howard] down there, and we had a number of shooters around him. When you have a team like that, it gives you a lot more room to operate down low. And if they want to double him, we are going to have shooters on the floor to space it out and knock them down."
