Through his first two seasons in the NBA, the only thing the Detroit Pistons could count on from Luke Kennard is him getting injured and missing prolonged periods of time. Since being drafted in 2017, Kennard has started in onl7 18 games, and missing 27 games over the last two years due to injury.
While Kennard averages shooting over 43% from three, what good does that do when he’s attempted only three 3-point shots per game for his career? He’s little more than a bench player for a team that’s going to be picking in the NBA Draft lottery yet again. Oh, and in case you forgot: Donovan Mitchell was taken one pick after Kennard.
