16. Boston Celtics – Corey Kispert, F, Gonzaga

Heading into the 2021 NBA Draft process, there might not be a prospect I’m more intrigued about than Corey Kispert. After a sensational senior season at Gonzaga, in which he emerged as a vital part of the team’s success, it’s going to be interesting to see how NBA teams project him at the next level.

Kispert is 6-foot-7 but could be categorized as strictly a shooter, even though he showed that he could be more than just that during his progression over four years with the Zags. During his final season, Kispert averaged 19 points and five rebounds per game on 44 percent shooting from 3-point range.

Kispert might not have as high as a ceiling as some of the other prospects taken in this range, but there’s no question he will be able to help a team – even if it is just due to his exceptional shooting stroke.
