Louis King

Last but not least, the wiry Louis King of Oregon was teammates with the already-explored Bol Bol, but King did manage to play in more than 9 games. King was action in 13 games for the Ducks, and he produced a fairly impressive level for an undersized wing.

King is shifty and quick, and he was able to leverage his fluid athleticism into some solid finishes around the rim as well as a cornucopia of different jump-shot looks – from short mid-range, long mid-range and, of course, from deep.

In his likely lone season at Oregon, King shot 38.6 percent from deep on a fairly high 45 percent three-point attempt rate – showing the necessary combination of volume and accuracy that is usually representative of a good deep threat.

Looking at The Stepien’s shot chart for King shows an ever-so-slight dip in his numbers from the NBA three-point line (33 of 87, 37.9 percent), but that difference is clearly negligible, so his shot should be fairly portable if the Atlanta Hawks were to take a swing on King in the second round of the 2019 NBA Draft – where he is projected to go at this point.

The NBA has become obsessed with the three-pointer and so, by extension, has NCAA basketball. These players could truly make a difference for the Atlanta Hawks at the three-point line, and we shall see how GM Travis Schlenk plays it in the 2019 NBA Draft. Will he go all-in on shooting like he did in 2018? Who knows, but there’s no question that the NBA Draft and draft lottery can’t get here soon enough!
