“Justinian Jessup just keeps filling it up!”
Those are the words of the TV broadcast as Warriors draft-and-stash prospect, Justinian Jessup, was in the midst of a brilliant game for the The Hawks of Australia’s NBL, per Warriors Reddit. The stats below are also confirmed by NBC Sports Bay Area’s Grant Liffmann.
Jessup is known for his shooting, which is obviously very good, judging from this extra-long clip from Jessup’s second game in the NBL.
But look at the rest of his game. Very impressive. So much so, I almost wish he could suit up for the Warriors right now so I can watch him play live. From the highlights above, it seems just a matter of time before the Warriors reap the benefits from this selection, the 51st overall in 2020.
And not to get ahead of ourselves, but it appears Jessup was a brilliant draft-day steal by general manager Bob Myers and the Warriors’ brass. Jessup simply looks incredible, and perhaps could even be an instrumental role player in the near future.
Either way, the Warriors have a talented prospect preparing for his inevitable NBA debut as he plays down under. When he finally gets the call up to the U.S., it looks like he’ll be ready to give the No. 1 league in the world his best shot.
