One of the best 3-point shooters in the NBA, Bertans averaged 15.4 points and 4.5 rebounds last season — both career highs. He shot 42.4% from beyond the arc and made 200 3-pointers before opting out of the NBA restart.
At 6-foot-10, Bertans is a towering sharpshooter with great range. Though he came off the bench, Bertans led the league with 7.4 catch-and-shoot 3-point attempts per game.
Bertans made his NBA debut with the San Antonio Spurs in the 2016-17 season. The Wizards acquired Bertans in a three-team trade before last season.
