2012 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Damian Lillard


Position: Point Guard

Size: 6-3, 195

School: Weber State, Junior


Strengths:
  • Natrual scorer
  • Three-point shooting
  • Pull-up jumper
  • Quick off the bounce
  • Change of speed dribble
  • Creative scorer around the hoop
  • Body control when attacking the basket
  • Utilizes floater in the lane
  • Free-throw shooting
  • Drive-and-dish ability
  • Good size for an NBA point guard
  • Sneaky athleticism
  • Rebounds well for his position



    Weaknesses:
  • Not a true distributing point guard
  • Stands around too much on offense when ball isn't in his hands
  • Gets a little reckless on his drives to the hoop
  • Defensive effort

    Summary: Playing against inferior competition in the Big Sky Conference, Lillard had a monster junior season, finishing second in the nation in scoring. He hasn't displayed the ability to be a true distributor since he needed to be a scorer for the Wildcats, so that is a bit of a concern. Still, Lillard has a chance to be the first point guard taken in what is a weak class at the position. He should get selected somewhere from the late lottery to mid-first round.

    Player Comparison: Jarrett Jack. Lillard is more of a scoring point guard than true floor general just like Jack. Both guys have good size for the next level, and can attack the tin or shoot it from deep.
