Corey Kispert Rumors

Brooklyn’s Joe Harris is arguably the best shooter in the NBA. He’s shooting a white-hot 50.6 percent from beyond the arc this season. A longtime NBA scout contends Gonzaga’s Corey Kispert has similar shooting skills. “I think he’s almost as good of a shooter as Joe Harris,’’ the scout said of Kispert, who is shooting 46 percent on treys this season and .889 from the free throw line. “And Kispert is a better athlete. He can do more things than Harris. He’s going to be a very good pro.’’
Gonzaga forward Corey Kispert is withdrawing his name from the NBA draft and will return to the Bulldogs for his senior season, putting them in contention to be the preseason No. 1 team in the country. Kispert was a potential second-round pick, ranking No. 47 overall and No. 6 among small forwards in ESPN’s NBA draft rankings. But he, like teammate Joel Ayayi last week, is heading back to Spokane, Washington, to compete for a national championship.
