People will point to his inability to hit in-game three-pointers with consistency as a knock against him, especially when compared to popular domestic prospects. Austin Green of Los Crossovers debunked that argument after taking a deeper look at some of these prospects:
“Kurucs’ 3-point percentage (32.5%) is a little disappointing, but he has pretty good form and it’s a small sample size (27/83).
In comparison, this year Kansas’ Josh Jackson made 34/90 threes (37.7%), Duke’s Jayson Tatum made 40/117 (34.1%) and Jonathan Isaac made 31/89 (34.8%). The FIBA 3-point line is also farther away than the NCAA line.
