Luke Kennard could just be the pure sharpshooter the 76ers need

Memphis had the worst injury luck in the NBA this season, which was the prime impetus behind them finishing at the bottom of the standings after being an elite team in the last couple of years. And while keeping their core intact would be a justified move, it’s much safer for them to at least rework the roster, at least on the margins.

And for them to free up more cap space, they could be forced to decline their club option on Luke Kennard who, despite another productive campaign, bears constant risk of injury. In that case, the 76ers should pounce on that opportunity and lo0ok into bringing the 27-year-old in.

Kennard’s best trait is obviously his three-point shooting, having shot the three-ball at a mind-boggling 43.9 percent clip for his career on good volume. He’s not the most nimble of feet, particularly defensively, but he is as consister of a shooter as you can get. He’s also able to leverage his good court sense to function as a connector on offense.
