Jeremy Lamb NBA Draft Profile

Jeremy Lamb NBA Draft Profile 

Jeremy Lamb, Sophomore, Shooting Guard, Connecticut



It took him a little while but Jeremy Lamb eventually turned 2010-2011 into a clip show of how to score the basketball, at least for a few weeks. After a midseason run of floaters, threes and dunks, Lamb turned the scoring reins back over to teammate Kemba Walker for the stretch run and the postseason tournaments. It was enough to see Lamb’s potential though.

This coming season, with Walker off to the NBA, the Huskies will be Lamb’s team. He is the go-to scorer and playmaker, two terms that can build up his NBA credentials rather quickly.


Final Projection:

Although NBA scouts didn’t get a huge sample of what Jeremy Lamb is capable of last season, the glimpses were there. He was able to score 20+ points rather effortlessly in some games, with a large repertoire of scoring moves. The NBA will also like his size and length. The 2011-2012 season will be the best barometer but Lamb could very easily hear his name called in the first round of the ’12 draft.


5/31/12 Update by Dan Levine

Jeremy Lamb defines the term “athletic scorer.”  He has a great release and is fluid moving up and down the court.  He had a fantastic season in an otherwise forgettable year for Connecticut.  He’s got a great motor.  He averaged over 37 minutes a game in 2011-2012.  He will most likely go in the top-12 picks.
