DeAndre Jordan Already Working on His Free-Throws for the Mavs

by July 08, 2015

Dallas Mavericks free agent acquisition DeAndre Jordan is hard at work this summer on his troublesome free-throw shooting, taking instruction from former NBA head coach and LA Clippers assistant John Lucas.

The big fella apparently drained 1,000 attempts Tuesday.

Jordan is a 39.7 percent career shooter from the charity stripe, and unless his offseason shooting improves, Mavs opponents will undoubtedly continue to hack him.

Per the Dallas Morning News:

Itโ€™s an area of Jordanโ€™s game that, to be frank, needs work. Fortunately for Mavs fans, the center appears to realize that.


Lucas tweeted a pair of photos of the Mavericks center, claiming the big man just hit free throw No. 1,000 of the day.


Weโ€™re not sure whether Jordan actually nailed that many free throws in one workout, but just being on the court this early in the offseason canโ€™t be a bad sign for Mavs fans.
