Best Catch-And-Shoot Prospects 

Duke logo
Luke Kennard, Duke (4.7 attempts per game, 66.5 eFG%)


Screen Shot 2017-05-24 at 10.40.39 AM.pngLuke Kennard is the best catch-and-shoot player among draft-eligible college prospects included in our sample. He’s the only one who ranks in our NBA Draft Top 5 in both the catch and shoot AND off the dribble categories. Kennard is an elite performer off the catch from both wings, but his favorite spot on the floor is the left corner where he shoots 65% on catch and shoot threes.

Nova
Josh Hart, Villanova (4.3 attempts per game, 62.3 eFG%)


Screen Shot 2017-05-24 at 10.45.35 AM.pngHart sunk a career-high 74 threes as a senior - 62 of them off the catch. He was above average in efficiency from everywhere on the floor (disregarding the left corner). However, the right corner appeared to be his favorite spot. Seniors aren't always the most enticing prospects, but Hart should be a great pick come the second round.

Semi Ojeleye, SMU (5.3 attempts per game, 60.6 eFG%)


Screen Shot 2017-05-24 at 10.53.49 AM.pngOjeleye is a tweener combo forward prospect, but his combination of strength and shooting ability makes him a very intriguing one. Ojeleye loves to play from the top of the floor out to the right wing where he shoots over 50% from both zones.

Cuse
Tyler Lydon, Syracuse (4.2 attempts per game, 60.4 eFG%)


Screen Shot 2017-05-24 at 1.39.52 PM.pngLydon is effective from the corners, be it with a very limited sample size. Almost all of his catch and shoot production came from above the charity stripe where he attempted 69% of his catch and shoot jumpers on the season.With deep range and a pure shot, Lydon should be able to stretch the floor out at the next level through the ball screen game.

Zona
Lauri Markkanen, Arizona (4.8 attempts per game, 58.3 eFG%)


Screen Shot 2017-05-24 at 1.45.18 PM.pngAt 7-feet tall, Markkanen is the biggest player in our Top 5 list. He’s an elite pick and pop player and should be a natural fit in the NBA as the game continues to emphasize big men who can stretch the floor. Markkanen’s favorite spot on the hardwood is the left wing, oftentimes a byproduct of his pick and pop action, where he makes 51% of his catch and shoot jumpers.

1pn8ny.gifOther notables: Lonzo Ball (3.9 attempts per game, 60.8 eFG%), Tyler Dorsey (4.5 attempts per game,58 eFG%), Donovan Mitchell (5.2 attempts per game, 56.6 eFG%), Malik Monk (5.5 attempts per game, 56.4 eFG%), Justin Jackson (6.6 attempts per game, 55.6 eFG%)
