08:08 AM ET 10.08 | What Keith Smart calls "a step" may wind up being a giant leap for Tyreke Evans, who spent the offseason trying to improve his shooting game. "People just started looking at film and started trying to keep me from going to the basket," he said. "This year, I'm going to have to go to the pull-up (jump shot). I'm still going to go in there, no matter what, but I want to go to the pull-up too." Smart believes Evans' work isn't motivated by the prospect of a new contract. The deadline for Evans to receive an extension is Oct. 31. The coach says Evans is simply growing up. "Here, you're playing against Kobe Bryant or Dwyane Wade, and they're backing off, inviting you to shoot," Smart said. "That's telling you that you haven't worked on your shooting."

Promising rookie year....but has not improved since. Hope that pull up starts falling for you cause you have the potential but time is running buddy.

I cant figure out what the deal is with him? After that ROY campaign, thought he was poised to be mentioned among the top tier young guns in the 'A'..since then, not so much
