The Wizards are entering year two of a total rebuild, and Kispert is about to get more expensive. He is set to make $5 million in the 2024-25 season before becoming a restricted free agent. Washington can extend him this offseason, but should look to move on if the two sides cannot agree on a fresh contract.

Kispert’s minutes dipped in year three, despite Washington leaning into rebuilding. His counting stats improved, but the lack of playing time may be a sign that he is not part of the Wizards’ future. The 6’7 forward averaged 13.4 points, 2.8 rebounds, and 2.0 assists in 25.8 minutes per game, while shooting 48.6 percent from the field and 38.3 percent on his 3-point attempts.

Kispert struggles on defense and has produced a negative value over replacement level (VORP) in two of his first three NBA seasons. The Wizards have been a mess in recent years and the 15th overall pick in 2021 may blossom in a winning situation. His impact may come strictly as a floor spacer and offensive weapon, but the Bucks need any help possible.

With limited draft capital and the second tax apron looming, the Milwaukee Bucks must take what they can get. It may even involve buying low on a struggling option in hopes he can turn things around.
