Perhaps it’s because he’s not as flashy as other forwards but Siakam isn’t always mentioned as one of the best big dudes in the league.
Yet, he’s been incredibly consistent for the last few years.
He has averaged more than 20 points a game for three seasons in a row.
Last season, he put up 22.8 points, 8.5 rebounds, and 5.3 assists.
He seems to be getting better but he’s not slowing down.
Pascal Siakam continues to work on his long range game with Raptors development coach, Rico Hines 👀

Siakam was recently seen working on his long-range shots with the Raptors development coach, Rico Hines.
Despite his big size, Siakam is in complete control of his body and is putting up some very impressive shots.
The Raptors over-performed last season and Siakam was a big part of that.
What will the new season bring for him and his squad?
Not many people were expecting great things from the Raptors last year because of significant changes to the roster over the last few years.
Yet, they ended up with a 48-34 record and the fifth seed in the East.
They haven’t done much in the offseason but if Siakam is able to keep it up then the upcoming season might be just as impressive.
Make no mistake, the Eastern Conference will be very difficult next season and the Raptors have a lot of stuff going against them.
But they could be a break-out team that outdoes expectations again – especially if Siakam remains in fine form.
