2010 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Damion James


Position: Small Forward

Size: 6-7, 222

School: Texas, Senior


Strengths:
  • Uses his great strength to be physical on the glass, especially on the offensive end
  • Nice mid-range jumper
  • Strong finisher due to his impressive athleticism
  • Decent back-to-the-basket game
  • Runs the floor well
  • Plays hard and isn't afraid to mix it up down low
  • Stays active when the ball isn't in his hands



    Weaknesses:
  • Shot 33 percent from three after hitting 41 percent from downtown his sophomore year
  • Not a great ball-handler
  • Improved free-throw shooter, but that area still needs to improve
  • May be better suited as a power forward, but will play the three due to his height
  • Must become a more consistent defender especially on the perimeter
  • Is better off being a complementary player as he has failed to emerge into a go-to guy

    Summary: Once projected as a possible lottery pick, this will be a very telling season for James. If he can make the steps that he failed to take from his sophomore to junior season, he should be a mid-late first round pick. If his progress is further haulted, don't be surprised to see him slip into the second round.

    Player Comparison: Wilson Chandler. Chandler is a solid athlete who relies on his ability to finish inside and mid-range game to score. James is in a similar mold but plays with a little more physicality.
