2011 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Kemba Walker


Position: Point Guard

Size: 6-1, 175

School: UConn, Junior


Strengths:
  • Lightning quick with the basketball
  • Great change of direction dribble
  • One of the fastest players in the country going coast-to-coast
  • Excels when leading the break
  • At his best when he is driving to the basket
  • Not afraid of contact when finishing
  • Gets to the free throw line at a high rate
  • Creating his own shot
  • Creative scorer around the rim
  • Can take over a game with his scoring, but also knows when and how to find open teammates
  • Excels when leading the break
  • Good mid-range jumper
  • Improved outside shooter
  • Great on-the-ball defender
  • Stays active in the passing lanes
  • Fierce competitor
  • Leadership



    Weaknesses:
  • Sometimes tries to push the tempo when it is not there
  • Shot selection
  • Undersized for an NBA point guard as that 6-1 listing is a little generous

    Summary: Walker has gotten off to unbelievable start this season and has been the talk of college basketball which will do wonders for his draft stock. He has proven he is a lottery talent, and if he can continue to play at a high level for the remainder of the season, he could easily be a top-10 pick. Walker still needs to improve on his pure point guard skills as he is playing off the ball a little more this season, but will almost certainly turn pro after this year.

    Player Comparison: Brandon Jennings. Jennings is a terrific playmaker who is at his best when he gets to the basket, but also has a nice pull-up game. Walker is becoming a better outside shooter which is an area that Jennings has struggled, but both guys are so talented with the ball in their hands.
