Landry Shamet was drafted by the Philadelphia 76ers with the 26th pick in the first round of the 2018 NBA Draft. He was traded to the Clippers on February 6, 2019 as part of the Tobias Harris trade.

He had quite the debut for the Clippers, as he scored 17 points on the road at Boston, knocking down four from deep.

He appeared in 25 games for the Clippers the rest of the season, starting 23 of them. Shamet averaged 11 points per game, to go along with two rebounds and two assists. The rookie was lights out from beyond the arc, as he shot 45 percent.

Shamet’s most memorable moment came in Game 2 of the first round of the 2019 NBA playoffs. After trailing by as many as 31 points, the Clippers rallied from behind to win the game, largely thanks to Shamet’s go-ahead bucket with 15 seconds remaining.

In 47 games this season, Shamet only started 27 of them. This is largely due to an upgraded roster, with no room in the starting rotation for him. He’s averaging just under 10 points a game this year while shooting 39.2 percent from deep. In the games he starts, Shamet averaged 11 points while shooting 40.2 percent from three.
