Specialists are always among the players who run through the NBA's rumor mill every season—defenders, rebounders, and for the purposes of this slideshow, shooters.
Since the NBA adopted the three-point shot in 1979, it's slowly evolved into an integral part of the game. During that inaugural season, the league hit 28 percent from three-point range. Ten years later, it rose to 33 in 1989-90 and then to 35 in 1999-2000. Last season, the league-wide three-point percentage was 35.9.
The average number of threes made per team has seen a similar incline in the last 30-plus years.
Shooters are in high demand these days, and there are a number of players who've made a career out of doing little more.
Some of the guys on this list were more than merely three-point specialists earlier in their careers, and one player could still develop into something beyond that label. But if any of them are moved this season, it will likely have a lot to do with their ability to knock down threes.
