3P shooting percentages with and without a dribble

Below is a comparison of a player’s three point success rate shooting off the dribble (e.g. as the pick and roll ball handler, in an isolation situation, pulling up in transition etc.) versus shooting without dribbling (e.g. catch and shoot via a teammates penetration etc.).

The players have been sorted by their number of ‘off the dribble’ shots and its no surprise that Rotnei Clarke is at the top of the list (he and Chris Goulding had over 100 attempts of this kind). The players at the bottom of the table aren’t taking these shots anywhere near as frequently (not even one attempt per game).
