Jett Howard proclaims himself the best shooter available in the 2023 NBA Draft
Jett Howard spent one season at Michigan playing for his father’s program before opting for the 2023 NBA Draft. Now taking part in the NBA Combine, Howard isn’t backing down from what he believes he brings to the table.
Asked by BTN’s Andy Katz about what he showed during his season with the Wolverines, Howard explained he believes he’s the best shooter available on the board:
“I’m the best shooter in the NBA Draft. I think it’s as simple as that,” said Howard.
Howard also provided some comments on what it was like to discuss his decision with Juwan Howard, his father but also his coach at the collegiate level. At the end of the day, Jett said Juwan was supportive and did his best to differentiate between his roles as a coach and father throughout.

As for his stock for the draft, Howard certainly has a tantalizing skill set for NBA teams. Listed at 6-foot-8, Howard averaged 14.2 points per game as a true freshman while also shooting 37% from 3-point range and right at 50% from inside the arc.
It remains to be seen where he winds up but Howard definitely has a great shot to make an impact early in his NBA career.
