Kilpatrick played for four teams last season, his fourth in the NBA. He did little for the Nets, having lost the rotation spot with them that he held the previous year, then underwhelmed in a part-season stay with the Bucks and a 10-day contract with the Clippers, before rebounding to average 15.4 points per game over the final nine games of the season for the tanking Chicago Bulls. Kilpatrick now sports a 10.3 points per game career average over four seasons, and while he has been inefficient in doing so (never being as good of a three-point shooter as he is a turnaround two-point shooter), and the consequence-less nature of many of those points on poor Nets teams, he can also score the ball at the NBA level for the minimum. It should be worth something.

Bouncing his way through three NBA teams this season, Kilpatrick was in the midst of a bad one until his late-season audition with Chicago saw him get up a ton of shots and salvage it.
Kilpatrick seemed to enjoy this carte blanche to shoot on sight, as that suits his skill set. Wherever he has played, he has been a gunner, and no different was that here. Kilpatrick in fact gunned so well for the Bulls, particularly in clutch situations, that he inadvertently turned some intended losses into wins, which, when combined with losing the coin flip to the Kings, accidentally improved the first-round draft pick they had tanked to bolstered. And all so that Sean Kilpatrick could help them meet the salary floor. Whoops.
Nevertheless, notwithstanding the parallels between Kilpatrick right here and Jannero Pargo’s first Bulls stint back in 1864 or whenever it was, the question now is whether Kilpatrick can be a piece of the future.
A look at his total body of work for the season says no, not really. Kilpatrick is a scorer, yes, but no better of one than other replacement-level players, including Antonio Blakeney. It is not for nothing that Kilpatrick is about the same size as Blakeney with basically the same skill set to work with, the same shot-dominance, defensive concerns, etc. It is also not for nothing that Zach LaVine has all the same concerns, too.
Nevertheless, even if he gets squeezed out here, Kildrapick got $2.1 million for nine games of work. Now that’s good hustle.
Player Plan: Two years and $4,109,712 remaining, none of which is guaranteed. Should think he will be waived unless he shows a lot quickly.

It might be very beneficial for Kilpatrick to be on a team with better offensive players. Then again, his lack of ball movement (and poor defensive effort) is partly why the Nets offence is where it is. His unafraid nature offensively is a virtue, but in being inefficient, undersized and already aged 27, he is not a noteworthy piece for the future. Keep him and let his deal guarantee, but if a second round pick should ever be hanging out there for him from somewhere - unlikely but possible - then take it.
Player Plan: Unguaranteed minimum salary for 2017/18, final year. Guarantee date is before the moratorium, thus essentially functioning as an option. Keep, but upgrade.
