There are many correct answers to this question. It is difficult to confidently say what the issue is without seeing the player in action. It could be something that could be resolved by practice. One reason could be height.

The player could be too short or too tall to succeed in the jump shot effectively. Another reason is that a player could have an issue with jumping and releasing the ball at the same time. Jumping and releasing must be done at the same time, and for some people, it is difficult to do those two things at the same time.

A dead ball typically occurs in basketball after the ref calls a foul or when a foul has been shot, another one is going to be made, and/or the ball has gone out of bounds. The term of a “dead ball” refers to the ball not being playable. The NBA has defined that this is a good time for player substitutions to be made, especially if a player is injured during play.

However, the answers given here aren’t quite right. A dead ball is typically called by the ref, yes, but if it rebounds and doesn’t go out of play, that’s not a dead ball. Instead, the ref is left to call it if he sees something that would make it a foul instead of just a rebound.
