9. Peja Stojakovic – 40.4% in 40 games
While his stay in Indiana wasn’t incredibly long, he is a name that many around the league would not be surprised to see on this list or any list regarding shooting effectiveness.
Peja Stojakovic played primarily for the Sacramento Kings, although also had stops in New Orleans, Indiana, Dallas, and Toronto. The small forward out of Croatia was known for his ability to make shots from deep.
His time in Indy, while short (only 40 games), was very efficient, where he made 40.4% of his shots from deep on 5.6 attempts per game. While that seems a bit low in today’s NBA in terms of attempts, for his time, Stojakovic was shooting from deep frequently.
He would end his career as just over a 40% shooter on 5.5 attempts per game, so his time in Indiana certainly was not an anomaly since he was able to keep up that efficiency for an incredibly long career in the NBA.
