Kellan Grady will enter the season with a new expectation after a great rookie campaign.
Grady has the size and ability to be productive at both guard positions. He has a fluid release on his jumper and does a great job of getting open. He keeps defenses guessing off the ball constantly on the move searching for ways to be a threat. His release is quick and high, but slightly long. He's tough to guard on the move, similar to Kyle Korver, coming off screens. He reads defenders well and knows when to attack close outs or use his side dribble/step in order to create an open look. He also uses step backs to get clean looks. He does a good job of creating space both off the dribble or off the ball.
What makes Grady unique is his ability to put the ball on the floor. He has a nice touch on his floater, along with the ability to finish using both hands. He's not a once dimensional player. Grady has natural basketball instincts and sometimes the game looks easy to him. Sometimes I find myself wonder if he has another gear?
On the defensive side, he's not overwhelming, but willing. Overall he's an efficient player, 15.91 PER, True Shooting percentage 61.5%.
Per Min of Production: 0.45
Points Per Possession: 1.14
True Shooting Percentage: 61%
Transferable Skills: Perimeter Shooting, Playmaking
