Gaze, Blake: Kevin Lisch NBA ready
With his potent shooting from the perimeter, Gaze says the veteran guard has all the attributes to thrive in America.
"I hope Kevin still aspires to do that (NBA), because he has the ability," Gaze told The Daily Telegraph.
“Sometimes you can say there are a few worse players running around in the NBA compared to player X in the NBL. In Kevin's case, there are many players that do not have the skills of Kevin Lisch running around in an NBA jersey make no mistake about that.
Talk to Blake, though, and the former Los Angeles Lakers playmaker insists Lisch could make it in the US.
“Kevin is a great talent,” Blake said.
“He has a great basketball mind and understands the game really well and I think he could pretty much translate his game anywhere.
“He has a great shot and that can probably be one of the biggest challenges for most guys going to the States.
“How you transition to the further three can be tough, but I think Kevin can do it. We’ve seen him take some NBA threes in games here.
“And as far as understanding the game, making reads and just being a competitor on both ends of the floor, Kevin is definitely a really good player.”
