2011 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Iman Shumpert


Position: Point Guard

Size: 6-5, 222

School: Georgia Tech, Junior


Strengths:
  • Versatility
  • Athleticism
  • Finishing at the basket
  • Leaping ability
  • Pull-up jumper
  • Excels in the open floor
  • Length and size help him defensively
  • Active in jumping passing lanes
  • Rebounds well for his position
  • Confidence





    Weaknesses:
  • Is he a point guard or a two guard?
  • Must become a better distributor
  • Tends to over-dribble
  • Shot selection
  • Inconsistent outside shooter

    Summary: Iman Shumpert possesses everything physical trait you would want in a NBA guard - size, athleticism, quickness and strength. However, he does not have a true position and has a poor outside shot, which hurts his stock. He figures to be a second-round pick, but could slip into the late first round.

    Player Comparison: A much less dominant Tyreke Evans. Obviously this is a very loosed base comparison but Shumpert has some of the same traits as Evans; he is a bigger guard who can player either the one or the two. Shumpert is not a great shooter and tends to be out of control which are also weaknesses for Evans. Shumpert will never reach Evans' success level because of Evans' ability to almost effortlessly get to the basket, hense the "much less dominant Tyreke Evans."
