Landry Shamet: I Want To Learn The Most From JJ Redick
In the 2018 NBA Draft the Philadelphia 76ers selected Landry Shamet with the 26th overall pick. Shamet is a 6'5" Guard who played three seasons at Wichita State where he finished his college years with a 43.7 Percent Career Three Point Shooting. For the 2017-18 season Shamet averaged 14.9 Points per game and 5.2 Assists per game while leading the AAC in Three Point Shooting Percentage (44.2%). Shamet will be in attendance this Saturday at the Sixers Shore Tour Celebration from 3–6 p.m in Stone Harbor.
The 21 year old Shamet joined The Sports Bash on Thursday discussing what Sixers' players he is looking forward to playing with the most this upcoming season:
"Coming in I wanna learn the most from JJ (Redick) just because of who he is and everything I hear about how good of a pro he is and how he handles himself day to day. I’m gonna try to learn as much from him as possible not only on the court but off the court. I feel like he would be a great teaching point for me. Playing with Ben (Simmons), one of the best passers in the NBA, Joel Embiid - There’s different bits and pieces actually in different guys that I’m excited to work with. Those three probably are the biggest that I would say."
