I don't think problem is in Fields. It's our system.
Last season we played fast with a lot of ball movement.
That allowed Landry to shoot many open threes and he knocked them down with a good success. More fast break opportunities means more easy ways to score.
Because of good spacing and ball movement Fields got a lot of opportunities by doing the thing he excels at,cutting to the basket.
Now we also have great rebounders in Melo and Tyson which means less rebounds for Fields.
I will put it in a few words: Because of the different system Fields doesn't have opportunities to use the things he's best at. Less ball movement means less open three pointers. Slower pace means less easy fast break points and having great rebounders in Melo and Tyson lowers his rebounding average.
