Smile NBA Draft: Top 10 SG's

NBA Draft: Top 10 Shooting Guards | NBADraft.net

Quote:
1. Jeremy Lamb 6-6 180 SG UConn So.


Jeremy Lamb
Lamb is arguably the most dynamic perimeter scorer in the country when you consider his shot-creating/making abilities in the 15-25 foot range. He's a better shooter than his percentage suggests, and with arms long enough to row a paddle-less canoe, Lamb should get plenty of clean releases. Because of his offensive takeover capabilities, his upside surpasses Bradley Beal's, however a down-year showing a lack of leadership might have put a scare into NBA evaluators. Individual mentoring and daily practice reps with professionals can only help Lamb achieve his potential.

2. Bradley Beal 6-4 195 SG Florida Fr.

Though undersized for a natural two-guard, Beal has the NBA body (6'8 wingspan) to help mitigate his inch or two disadvantage. He'll become a fixture at the off-guard slot because of his pure shooting stroke and athleticism to defend, though his ceiling remains limited because his size. Still, Beal finished the season strong and has positioned himself as the safest choice of any off-guard in the draft pool.

3. Austin Rivers 6-4 203 SG Duke Fr.

Rivers has the talent required to score at the pro level, but lacks the size and strength to get easy buckets. Adjusting to his new role is a process, so any freshman blemishes shouldn't be magnified. He shot a respectable 36% from downtown while leading the Blue Devils in scoring. His offensive game is eerily similar to OJ Mayo's, although he doesn't have his build just yet. And while some question his attitude, I think it's just a side effect of a competitive drive and desire to be the best. Accepting the role and improving off the ball will give him the best shot as sustaining a 25-30 minute nightly assignment.

4. Terrence Ross 6-6 190 SG Washington So.

Though not as elusive off the dribble as the three mentioned above him, Ross' combination of athleticism, shot-making and defensive potential make him a multidimensional contributor. Ross showed an improved ability to create and finish in isolation operating on the perimeter, but has more promise as a complimentary piece at the next level. With so many likeable NBA qualities, Ross could be a steal from #15 on.


Doron Lamb
5. Doron Lamb 6-4 195 SG Kentucky So.

What strikes me about Lamb is his efficiency playing a position that's vulnerable to low-percentage basketball. Lamb shot 47% from the floor, 46% from three, 82% from the stripe and turned it over once every 31 minutes as a combo-guard. He's a safe bet to find a prominent role because of his natural shooting stroke and deceptive scoring ability. Rarely rattled by misses or pressure moments, Lamb has shined in situations where Kentucky needed a bucket. A solid athlete and willing defender, he's likely to strengthen and provide depth to an NBA backcourt.

Me too. With Rivers being my 3rd choice, I have a feeling he's going to be another Steph Curry.

I know nothing about Doron Lamb, but he sounds like he could be a pretty good player.

Not really. Didn't watch much NCAA this year. I watched a couple games, but I still don't know much about him.

Like I said, I watched a couple games. But not as much as I would have liked. And I was able to watch bits & pieces of games but very few full games.

I would like William Buford in the 2nd round but that could be the homer in me.

It was Lighty that was the very good defender. I think he might get signed somewhere as a bench player next year. He did one year in Europe this year.

Buford has a solid jumper and size.

I think Beal goes before Lamb. nbadraft.net isn't the most reliable of mock draft sources, and they seem pretty stubborn at times. I remember them keeping Derrick Williams as the #1 pick in their mock draft all through the process -even though it was clear that Kyrie was going #1 overall - right up until the last couple of days. I think they get enamoured with a prospect, and keep them overrated on their mocks.
