Now that we’ve had some time to settle down and accept Luke Kennard onto the team. How has he matched up so far in the Summer League? As the Summer League is nothing more than to get a glimpse of how players are around every aspect of the game. Luke has proved himself to be vital from the free throw line shooting 100%.
Averaging 17.2 points per game, this young man has everything Stan Van Gundy needs in this team. Last week the Pistons made a trade with the Boston Celtics. Giving away Marcus Morris for Avery Bradley who last year averaged 16.3 points per game in 55 games played along with a 2019 second round pick. The Pistons came out on top with this deal.
So far in the Summer League, Luke Kennard, getting 30.6 minutes a game has an outstanding 46.5% field goal percentage, 47.8% three-point percentage while tallying 4.2 rebounds a game.
This might be the Summer League, but there’s a lot to be optimistic about this kid. Here’s a video provided by the Detroit Pistons Facebook account:
