NBA Rumors: League's Top 3-Point Shooter Being Shopped

One thing is for certain in the NBA these days: Everyone needs shooters. Some teams drafted young prospects who they feel can shoot the ball, but if a team is in desperate need of an NBA sharpshooter, they need look no further than the Los Angeles Clippers. A report says they've put Luke Kennard — the NBA's top 3-point shooter this past season — on the trade block.

According to Sean Deveney of, the Clippers were trying to unload Kennard in advance of the Draft Thursday night, but will continue to work on shopping him, in order to have him off the roster in July. 

The 25-year-old shooting guard nailed an incredible 44.9% of his threes this season, following up a 44.6% performance the year before. He averaged 12 points and 3.3 rebounds in 27 minutes per game. 

The downside comes with his defense and his contract. Defense, he doesn't play much of. And contractually, he's owed about $14M for each of the next three seasons, before becoming a free agent in 2025.
