Future Watch: Landry Shamet Rookie Basketball Cards, Clippers

Future Watch: Landry Shamet Rookie Basketball Cards, ClippersFuture Watch: Landry Shamet Rookie Basketball Cards, ClippersLandry Shamet was born in Kansas City, Missouri in 1997. He attended Park High High School in Kansas City, and would attend Wichita State after graduation. Shamet played in only three games as a freshman. He suffered an early foot injury and was required to redshirt for the rest of the year. Shamet would enter his first official season with the Shockers as the team’s starting point guard.

In his redshirt freshman season, Landry Shamet averaged 11.4 points and 3.3 assists in 36 games. He was named to the MVC All-Conference First Team and earned MVC Freshman of the Year honors. As a sophomore, Shamet increased his scoring to 14.9 points per game. He also handed out 5.2 assists and shot 44.2% from behind the arc over 32 games. After the season, he would leave Wichita State for the NBA draft.

Shamet was a light’s out shooter in college. He finished his freshman season shooting 43.9% from deep and increased that to 44.2% as a sophomore. Standing 6’5” in shoes with a reported 7’ wingspan, he fits the mold for a modern NBA point guard. While he isn’t the most gifted athlete on the floor, he makes it up with an incredible basketball IQ and strong skills that will translate to the next level. His foot injury in college was a slight red flag, but nothing to push him from being picked in the first round. On draft night, the Philadelphia 76ers selected Landry Shamet with the 26th overall pick.

It has been a tale of two seasons for Shamet as a rookie. He began the season in Philadelphia with a solid role as a backup guard. He averaged around 20 minutes per game and shot 40.4% from Future Watch: Landry Shamet Rookie Basketball Cards, Clippersbehind the arc. On January 8th, he scored a career-high 29 points off the bench and set a 76ers rookie record with eight three-pointers. It was looking like Landry Shamet would be a solid role player for the 76ers in their quest for the NBA finals. However, that wouldn’t come to fruition for the rookie. In a “chips all inmove at the trade deadline, Philadelphia included Shamet in a package to acquire Tobias Harris from the Los Angeles Clippers.

The trade proved to be a benefit for Shamet. His role with the Clippers grew immediately under coach Doc Rivers. In 15 games, he’s averaging 28.3 minutes and is shooting 46.9% from behind the arc on 6.4 attempts per game. Since his acquisition, the Clippers are 11-5 and are within half a game of the sixth seed in the Western Conference.

In Philadelphia, Shamet was never going to escape the shadows of Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid. In Los Angeles, he’s now part of an incredibly deep roster that does not rely on a single star to carry the team. This is the environment where Landry Shamet can break out and gain attention from collectors around the globe. In eight games so far this March, he’s shooting 50.8% from three! Three-pointers are the new dunks when it comes to popularity, and Landry Shamet is flying under the radar. Don’t let that happen!

Collectors will find Landry Shamet in his Wichita State jersey in 2018 Panini Contender Draft Picks Collegiate Basketball. So far, all of his rookie cards feature him in a Philadelphia 76ers uniform. Look for his NBA rookie cards in 2018-19 Panini Prizm, Absolute, Contenders and many more.
