Some do, a lot don't. You also have guys like Harden, Curry, KAT, Lillard, the overrated defensively Westbrook and our very own Blake Griffin who don't really play much defense. Lebron doesn't bother playing defense anymore either, only when he feels like it. One of your favorites Devin Booker doesn't play any defense either.

Point being that Kennard is supposed to be a scorer, he's never going to be a plus defender. He can stand to improve defensively but his calling card will always be offense.

You asked if any scorers play defense.  I gave you a bunch that do.  Not sure what to tell ya after that.

PG13 28 PPG last year.  Kawhi 26 PPG.  Embiid 27 PPG.  Giannis 27 PPG.  Each one all defense last year.  ****, 6 of the 10 all defensive players were over 20 PPG last year.

3 of the top 5 scorers in the league last year were all defensive team, 4 of the top 10.  And that isn't counting Lebron and Davis who have both made all defensive teams in the past.

Yes, scorers play defense.

Yes, elite players play defense.
