Brady Heslip – Guard

"Heslip only played 20 games in the D-League before heading to Bosnia for a bigger deal. He’s a dead-eye shooter as evidenced by his 113 3PM in only 20 games this season! His splits were 476/443/765. While his shooting is NBA level, the rest of his game is yet to be seen at that level. He could be used as a role player off the bench a la James Jones for the Cavs. – Chris Reichert"

Hailing from Ontario, Canada, Heslip is a deadeye shooter whose resumé is very intriguing to say the least. At only 6’1″, Heslip is undersized for his skill-set and perhaps that’s the biggest thing holding him back from making a major impression on the big stage.

Through his time at Baylor, and then on to his brief spell with the Reno Bighorns, Heslip posted low assist numbers but lights out shooting, creating a conundrum as he doesn’t pass enough to play point guard, but is incredibly small by the standards of NBA two guards.

Don’t make any judgements too quickly though, as there are still plenty of numbers to suggest that Heslip could be worth a gamble. Heslip made 113 three-pointers in his 20 D-League appearances with Reno, knocking them down at a rate of 44.3 percent.

Not only was he efficient though, he also made shots in volume. Heslip holds the D-League record for most made three-point field goals in a single game with an incredible mark of 13.

Heslip finished his season playing professionally in Europe, where he won the Bosnian Cup and was named Bosnian Cup Final MVP while playing for Igokea.
