Bogut impressed by Warriors draft pick Jessup in NBL play


Warriors draft pick Justinian Jessup continues to turn heads with his impressive play in Australia's NBL, and you can count one of the country's greatest basketball players among those who have taken notice.

Andrew Bogut, a former Warrior himself, liked what he saw from Jessup in The Hawks' loss to the Brisbane Bullets on Thursday night.

Jessup finished with 26 points and seven rebounds, and Bogut seemed to be especially impressed by his efficiency, including connecting on four of his seven attempts from 3-point range. 

The 22-year-old also showed off his handle with this spin move and finish in the midrange.

Jessup has developed some quick chemistry with his NBL teammates, as he found one for a pretty alley-oop in transition.

The Boise State product has the best 3-point percentage of any player in the NBL with at least five attempts, and is looking like a tremendous find for the Warriors in the second round of the 2020 draft.

Perhaps he will be bringing that elite shooting touch to the Warriors' rotation next season.
