Unlike Avdija, Kispert doesn’t need any improvement on the offensive end. He is already an elite shooter with a constantly improving off-ball and inside-the-arc game. He was one of the most efficient and underrated scorers in the league last year. The next step for him is to play more on-ball and take more off-the-dribble shots. If he can show that he is capable of maintaining his efficiency while increasing his usage rate, he has a real chance to be one of the league’s elite role players.
The main area of improvement for Kispert needs to come on the defensive end. He is aware of this as well, as he pointed out his wish to be not subbed off at the end of games for defensive purposes.
He is never going to be a great defensive player. He lacks the length, quickness, and athleticism to defend the best offensive players in the league. But, with his basketball savvy, he should be able to get to a level where he is no longer a liability for his team.
If he manages to do that, Kispert could easily find himself cracking the top 100 next year. Buddy Hield (no. 87) who is a very similar type of player to Kispert, regularly finds himself on this list. Hield has the edge over Kispert in terms of his three-point volume as he consistently ranks at the top of the league in three-point attempt rate. But, he also has the same limitations has Kispert.
So, if Kispert gets his three-point attempts up and improves slightly on the other aspects of his game, he could easily knock Hield off this list and find himself a spot at the lower end of the rankings.
