“I have told Bryan and Ed the skill level and type of players we need,” said Casey.

“Shooters, that is the one skill. I know you can work with players when you get to this level, but you can’t teach the type of shooting that you like to have with three point shooters, those guys are born. You can work on it to get it a little bit better, but to get where we want to go, you have to have shooters. We need to add shooters to our roster.”

On changing the roster: “You can work on it to get a little bit better. To get where we want to go, you’re going to need shooters. Again, a guy like DeMar [DeRozan] is going to get better just through repetition. I’m not saying our guys can’t do that. But we need to add shooters and skilled players like that to our roster.
