Mitchell Robinson said he was adding the 3-point shot to his offensive arsenal.

"Why work on something you're not going to use? I'm looking forward to it...I'm shooting the thing now," said Robinson, who didn't attempt a 3 all of last season.

David Fizdale observed that Robinson, who averaged 2.4 blocks last season, is more disciplined on defense.

"He's more disciplined. Multiple times, guys tried to get him up in the air and he did a great job of staying down on shot fakes and keeping his hands out…. He's really coming into his own and understanding how he can be effective in the league," added Fizdale.
