Arguably the best shooter in the class, Kispert shot 53 percent from the field and 44 percent from 3 this past season while averaging 19 points per game for the nearly undefeated Gonzaga Bulldogs. He’s going to shoot the hell out of the ball, and he’s going to make elite decisions. NBA sources have compared him very similarly to Joe Harris, who has led the league in 3-point percentage in two of the last three seasons. There are some questions on defense, as Kispert doesn’t have the quickest feet in the world. But he’s a confident player who was the leader of Gonzaga’s team this past season, an elite character guy who will keep working and should stick as a very high-level role player.
Jordan Schakel: I’m a guy who can come in and make shots and play hard on defense like Cameron Johnson on the Phoenix Suns. Joe Harris has a larger role for the Brooklyn Nets but I see him as a shot-maker who plays hard and plays the right way. Somebody like Bruce Brown from the Nets doesn’t shoot like I do but he plays so hard. He fills a role that they need even though it may not be his position. I’ve done that before in my career, too. I’m somebody who can come in and do whatever the coach asks me to do and do it to the best of my abilities. I make my free throws. I make open shots. I have a low turnover rate.

Brooklyn went big with Jeff Green at power forward next to Durant, Joe Harris sliding down to off-guard and Bruce Brown going to the bench. But the Nets still got beaten on the boards, run off the court 26-4 in fast-break points, and left in an 11-2 early hole that reached 21 and proved too much to overcome. “The biggest thing is just how we start,” Landry Shamet had warned beforehand. “Even going back to the other night in Game 5, slow start, struggled to find our rhythm early, didn’t play with the right physicality. Things really that we can control that we did really, really well in Game 1 and Game 2, jump out to a big lead. “Those are the biggest things that we’re missing in the two road losses. It’s our energy, how we start the game. That’s all we can control, so that’s our plan going forward.”
