Brett Brown said he wants Ben Simmons to shoot at least one 3-point shot per game following the Philadelphia 76ers' 141-91 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Simmons, who had a career-high 34 points, hit his second 3-pointer of his career during the game.
"I want a 3-point shot a game, minimum. ... The mentality that he has where he's turning corners and taking that long step, that gather step, and bringing his shoulders to the rim and trying to dunk or finish tight, will equal higher efficiency, or getting fouled. That's the world that interests me the most. Those two things," said Brown following the game.
Brown added that a 3-pointer will liberate both Simmons' and the 76ers' game.
"When I put on my coaching hat and I'm looking at a 23-year-old young man trying to grow his game, it's completely, first, in his wheelhouse. And, secondly, he will be liberated. His world will open up. And I think, in many ways, so will ours."
