2011 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Alec Burks


Position: Shooting Guard

Size: 6-6, 185

School: Colorado, Sophomore


Strengths:
  • Creating his own shot
  • Attacking the basket
  • Absorbing contact and still finishing
  • Body control in the lane
  • Athleticism
  • Explosive at the rim
  • Dangerous in the open floor
  • Free throw shooter
  • Length
  • Good passer



    Weaknesses:
  • Inconsistent outside shooter
  • Needs to get stronger
  • Putting a body on a body on the defensive glass
  • Plays out of control, over-dribbles too often
  • Spends too much time on the defensive end watching

    Summary: The 2011 NBA Draft has a fair amount of combo guards who are first-round prospects, but Alec Burks is the best pure shooting guard in of this class. That obviously makes him a hot commodity and should have him in lottery discussions.

    Player Comparison: Evan Turner. Obviously Burks was not as dominant at the college level as Turner, but they are both players who are more effective when the ball is in their hands when they are trying to create, whether it is for themselves or for teammates. Neither player shoots the ball all that well from three, but both guys are good rebounders due to their height and athleticism.
