The Best Current NBA Free-Throw Shooters

Updated February 6, 2020 1.0k votes 46 voters51 items

List RulesVote up the players who can be counted on when they reach the line.

The best free-throw shooters in the NBA right now are the players you want at the foul line with the game resting in the balance. They are the players who know how to get to the line and contribute big points with their free-throw shot.

Even though he spent most of the 2019-2020 NBA season injured, Stephen Curry still has the highest FT percentage in NBA history, and as one of the best pure shooters the game has ever seen, Curry is just as valuable to his team from the foul line as behind the arc. Other top free-throw shooters today include pure shooters like Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, and Damian Lillard, who all carry free-throw percentages in the high 80s.

So check out this list of the best current NBA players at the free-throw line, and vote up the guys you would want at the line if your team needed two free throws to go in.
