Corey Kispert Highlights
Corey Kispert Draft Profile
Corey Kispert aims to follow similar paths as Buddy Hield and Devonte’ Graham by playing all four years in college before making the transition to the NBA. Kispert’s development in college has made him a player who has not only made great improvements statistically, but Kispert had the privilege of playing in many high-pressure situations in the NCAA. Kispert’s abilities to knock down the three-ball, make good quick decisions and play great defense on and off the ball make him a good prospect for a team looking for a solid Day 1 role player.
Kispert lacks the quickness to be able to guard modern NBA point guards. This means it will be difficult for him to switch onto smaller opponents in P&R situations. He also does not have much of an established arsenal of dribble moves. He is best when he is stationary in catch-and-shoot situations where he does not need to create his own shot.
