The 23-year-old spent five seasons in college from 2018 to 2023. His first three seasons were spent at Minnesota; his final two seasons were at Iowa State.

Kalscheur has now worked out for the Wolves, Magic, Hawks, Knicks, Bucks, Nets, Spurs, Warriors, and Thunder.

In 33 games last season at Iowa State, Kalscheur averaged 12.9 points on 40% shooting, 2.4 rebounds and 1.5 assists. He shot 35.4% from 3-point range on 6.2 attempts.

Known as an elite defender, Kalscheur can help teams on both ends of the floor.

Kalscheur was the star of Minnesota’s only NCAA tournament win under coach Richard Pitino, when as a freshman in 2019 he scored 24 points on 5-for-11 3-point shooting against Louisville. Kalscheur was the team’s best defender too, routinely drawing the opponent’s top scorer.

In 88 games with the Gophers, all starts, he averaged 10.4 points and shot 34.5% from 3-point range.
