2011 NBA Draft Scouting Report: David Lighty


Position: Shooting Guard

Size: 6-5, 220

School: Ohio State, Senior


Strengths:
  • Definition of a glue guy
  • Can guard multiple positions
  • Able to shutdown opponents on the wing
  • Versatility
  • Toughness
  • Strong rebounder
  • Improved three-point shooter
  • Taking defenders off the bounce
  • Can overpower smaller defenders
  • Unselfish
  • Passing ability
  • Plays with great intensity
  • Basketball IQ



    Weaknesses:
  • Confidence in three-point shot
  • Not overly athletic
  • Finishing and taking care of the ball in traffic
  • Free throw shooting

    Summary: With a fairly weak crop of seniors in the 2011 NBA Draft class, David Lighty will almost certainly find himself being drafted in the second round. He does not have the upside that is often coveted in the NBA Draft since he is a fifth-year senior, but Lighty does have experience and a proven record of being a winner and hard-nosed player.

    Player Comparison: Keith Bogans. Bogans has made a living in the NBA because of his intangibles and ability to defend. Lighty is a capable offensive player but will find a spot in the NBA because of his defensive prowess and value as a role player.
