Washington made it clear early on that their off-season priority was to retain Bertans, and locking him into a five-year deal certainly sums up their feelings on him. Despite having the defensive fortitude of a sieve last season, the Wizards sported the league's 15th-best offence, and ranked eighth in three-point percentage.
Bertans had no small part in that as one of the NBA's most lethal shooters, launching 8.7 triples per game and sinking them at a red-hot 42.4 per cent clip. He's a gunslinging dynamo when it comes to generating offence and creating a spark, and for a non-playoff team that's lacking in a number of areas, employing a guy that reliable is a boon.
In 2019-20, Bertans averaged 15.4 points, 4.5 rebounds and 1.7 assists on 43.4 per cent shooting in 29.3 minutes per game.
