If I could use one word to describe Luke Babbitt’s game, it would be smooth. He has a great-looking jumper with NBA range, and can shoot it off the dribble, off the catch, or standing still.
Babbitt has a crafty post game, and is very solid with his back to the basket, something that can’t be said for many of the best small forwards in the NBA. He loves contact, and is great at getting to the line, where he shot 91% last season.
With Ray Allen entering free agency, and Boston very unlikely to re-sign him, Luke Babbitt would be a great plug here. He fits the Ray Allen mold, and would definitely benefit from Rajon Rondo's slashing ability.
