Former All-American guard Sean Kilpatrick is reportedly heading out of the NBA D-League to the Brooklyn Nets, just one day after the team waived guard Joe Johnson. Kilpatrick has been scorching the D-League with a scoring average of over 26 points per game and 43 percent three-point shooting:

In a feature on Kilpatrick, our own Sean Kennedy wrote why he didn’t catch on right after college.

Despite being an AP first-team All-American at Cincinnati and the second-highest scoring player in school history (behind Oscar Robertson, no shame in playing second fiddle there), Kilpatrick was not selected in the 2014 NBA draft. At 6’4″ with only an average wingspan, Kilpatrick doesn’t possess ideal measureables for the modern two-guard, and he was also hurt by the stigma of being a four-year college player (he’s now 25 years old). Kilpatrick did demonstrate time and again to be able to score in a variety of ways with the Bearcats; per DraftExpress, he was above average in scoring efficiency, despite being the highest usage player among shooting guards in his draft class. Still, today’s NBA game is all about the long ball, and Kilpatrick was just a modest 34.7 percent three-point shooter across his four seasons at Cincinnati.
