Luke Kornet is a skilled, 7-1 center that could end up being a solid role player in this league. He is a stretch big that can knock down threes, and he also is a gifted shot blocker inside the paint.
However, he can tend to be streaky with his jump shot, and he can be quite inconsistent in games. He will also need to add strength to defend opponents better in the post, and he must improve his quickness to ably guard players out on the perimeter.
Right now, Kornet is a center that could be due for a breakout senior season, especially with Golden State Warriors’ rookie center Damian Jones leaving for the NBA.
