What Bass does well has very little value in the league. Taking a lot of 18 footers is a sucker's play. If you hit almost half of them, so what? That's barely one point per shot.
In today's NBA game, teams value guys who can get it done near the rim or behind the three point line. A good NBA player will convert over 60% of his shots near the rim, or close to 40% from behind the arc, which is also 1.2 pps.
If Bass wants more minutes, be needs to use that sculpted body for more than launching open 16 footers. Try boxing out all game, and maybe going to the rim like a maniac three or four times a game.
