Andre Roberson air-balls a free throw. Again (video)

The Thunder didn’t need Andre Roberson’s free throw in their 127-99 win over Orlando yesterday.

But they need a capable shooting guard, ideally one who can knock down some of the open looks Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook create.

As the video shows, that might not be Roberson, whose poor shooting – even air-balling a free throw – is nothing new.

He’s shooting just 16 percent on 3-pointers this season, which is actually up from 15 percent last year. But his free-throw percentage, 48 (down from 70), indicates bigger issues with his shooting touch.

Roberson provides half the 3-and-D equation, but this is as good of an opportunity as any to ask: How much longer will the Thunder let Roberson start if he’s not providing anything offensively?
