Dwyane Wade sees no reason why he can't develop the three-point shot

It may sound a bit strange to most, but Chicago Bulls head coach Fred Hoiberg is emphasising the fact he wants Dwyane Wade to unleash from three-point regularly next season.

The biggest problem for the Bulls heading into next season is how they are going to spread the floor with three players - Wade, Jimmy Butler and Rajon Rondo - who struggle from deep and prefer to attack the basket. 

However, if one player is confident enough to take on the burden of attempting more shots from three, then it could address their issues. And it seems that man could be Wade. 

His stats are somewhat deceiving; a career 28.4 percent, he has always struggled to get into a rhythm. Much of that has to do with the tight defence deployed on him to stop his slashes to the rim, however, in the playoffs, when teams sat off him somewhat, he was up at 52.2 percent.

Speaking about the potential of taking more shots from three, the guard said: "That's a little new for me. A lot of people have talked about me not shooting 3s, but no one has been able to take away what I wanted to do. So why would I do something else?

"When you take it away, I have the ability to knock it down. I'm not Doug McDermott. I'm not Niko (Mirotic). But I'm comfortable with the shot and I'm going to shoot it. I know it's going to be there, so I have a better chance of knocking it down."
