It’s hard to know how high Kurucs’s ceiling is. He has been as good as his limited role allows him to be as a rookie. There is plenty of room to grow. He has one of the lower 3-point rates on the Nets roster, and he might develop into a player who can shoot 3s off movement, a really unusual skill for a guy with his size and speed. Kurucs is in the 59th percentile of scorers leaguewide coming around screens off the ball, albeit in a very limited number of attempts (18), per Synergy. Creating for others is probably farther away, since he so aggressively looks for his own shot that he rarely makes plays on the move. He can also improve physically. He has a frame that should allow him to put on weight without losing athleticism, now that he’s in an NBA strength-and-conditioning program. A 20-year-old who can already contribute on both ends of the floor before tapping into his athletic upside has the chance to be really good at 25.
