2011 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Malcolm Lee


Position: Shooting Guard

Size: 6-5, 198

School: UCLA, Junior


Strengths:
  • Terrific on-the-ball defender
  • Length helps him guard
  • Can defend either guard position
  • Athleticism
  • Excels in transition
  • Creating his own shot
  • Slasher



    Weaknesses:
  • Three-point shooter
  • Inconsistent outside shooter
  • Never came close to reaching potential in three years at UCLA
  • Decision making on offensive end
  • Is he a point guard or shooting guard?

    Summary: Lee's decision to enter the 2011 NBA Draft is surprising since he is not a first-round prospect. He had a very underwhleming career at UCLA like many Ben Howland-coached guards have, which leads some to believe that his best basketball is ahead of him. Until he develops a consistent offensive game, he will have to find niche in the league as a defender since he was one of the best in college basketball.

    Player Comparison: Shannon Brown. Brown struggled to find his spot in the NBA until two years ago with the Lakers. A terrific athlete who can play either guard spot, Brown is not an outside threat but at his best when he is out and running. He is also a more than capable defender. All these descriptions fit Lee's strengths and weaknesses, and if he has to follow a career path, Brown's is not a bad place to start.
