Kaiser Gates is a skilled, combo forward that can shoot the basketball. He can knock down many spot-up threes from beyond the arc, and he has a quick release that enables him to easily get his shot off.
He may need to improve in the other facets of the game, but in a favorable scenario, he could perhaps develop into a shooting specialist akin to a Chris Copeland type of player in the NBA.
