Corey Kispert has a great case for starting small forward of the Washington Wizards
Corey Kispert is a gifted scorer when given the opportunity. With an elite three-point shot, off-ball cutting skills, and impressive leaping ability, he has the tools to be a 15+ point per game scorer.
He can easily play off of the main three players in the starting unit, providing space for Poole and Kuzma to operate. He can also find gaps off the ball for Tyus Jones to find him on a cut. Running the floor is also one of his strengths as if he can get ahead of the defense a highlight dunk is just waiting to happen.
He is also more than willing to make the extra pass as last season, he passed the rock more than he had it passed to him. This is an odd stat for players like him who typically don’t get the ball much unless it’s to shoot the ball or in a set play.
The only setback in Kispert’s game is his weakness on the defensive end of the floor. While he is far from the worst defender in the league, he isn’t a plus on that end either. With Jordan Poole in the starting group, having Kispert on the floor could create a plethora of scoring opportunities for opposing wings.
