Flip Saunders expects Ricky Rubio to become more efficient as a scorer. "In order for him to get to the next level, that's what he's going to have to improve on," Saunders said. "And he will improve on it. He will really work at it."Rubio shot just 36 percent from the floor last season, including 29.3 percent from downtown. "He's kind of in between a set shot and a jump shot a lot of times," Saunders said. "That happens a lot when you're younger and coming up."Adding a jumper could open up a lot of things for Rubio. "That's his next step in the evolution of the point guard position," Saunders said. "Being a bigger scoring threat, being able to knock down shots, which will make the game much easier for him."
