The Indiana Pacers had one of the busiest summer of all teams after adding a number of major pieces to their roster.

The new faces in Al Jefferson, Jeff Teague, and Thaddeus Young all figure to contribute significantly to the Pacers’ cause this season.

For Thaddeus Young, his move to Indiana is a breathe of fresh air as he has the opportunity to once again step foot in the postseason. He is getting himself ready, and according to Mark Montieth of Pacers.com, the versatile forward is working on improving his jump shot.

He’s up for whatever the offensive system calls for, but he continues to work on his perimeter shooting after practice and on his own. He believes accuracy will come with opportunity and the coach’s blessing.

Young has never shot the ball better than 34% from long distance. Last season, his field goal percentage from 10 to 15 feet was at 33%. While his shooting from 16 feet all the way to the three point arc was at a 41% clip.

Nevertheless, he will get his opportunities in other areas of the floor, and his minutes are expected to remain steady. Thaddeus Young is projected as the team’s starting power forward when the regular season tips off.
