Justinian Jessup Rumors

The idea was that Jessup would slowly develop under the guidance of the Hawks’ well-regarded coach, Brian Goorjian. Instead, Jessup has stepped into the Australian scene and immediately started lighting it up. From the first preseason game through the early regular season, the American rookie has been a force from the perimeter. In four regular-season games so far (all victories), Jessup’s sunk 10 of his first 17 3-point attempts, and played an average of 29.7 out of 40 possible minutes. Basically, he’s arrived on the scene as one of a winning team’s most important players.
