Luke Kennard is thriving with the Memphis Grizzlies
One of the most prolific shooters in the NBA, Luke Kennard has been having another productive season with the Memphis Grizzlies. After leading the league in three-point shooting percentage with the Clippers in 2021-22, LA traded Kennard along with John Wall in order to bring in Eric Gordon.
Since arriving in Memphis, Kennard has been averaging 8.3 points per game on 37% shooting from deep for the Grizzlies. While this is below his career average of 43% from three-point range, Kennard is continuing to showcase his high-level catch-and-shoot ability for what should be a contending team once the Grizzlies' roster recovers from extensive injuries.
In the modern NBA, Luke Kennard is exactly the type of player any team would love to employ. With a quick trigger and an extremely accurate jump shot, he can very effectively be plugged and placed in a variety of lineups, providing spacing and scoring.
Kennard is also the type of player that ups his game when the playoffs arrive. While his career shooting average from beyond the arc of 43% is impressive, he holds an astounding 46% mark for his career in the postseason. There is no doubt the Clippers will miss having his services in the coming years.
