2012 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Marcus Denmon


Position: Shooting Guard

Size: 6-3, 185

School: Missouri, Senior


Strengths:
  • Attacking the basket
  • Finishing through contact
  • Body control in the lane
  • Creating his own shot
  • Quickness
  • Pull-up jumper
  • Three-point shooting
  • Shot selection
  • Free throw shooter
  • Doesn't turn the ball over very often
  • Solid on-the-ball defender
  • Rebounds well for his size
  • Toughness



    Weaknesses:
  • Undersized to be a NBA two-guard
  • Doesn't have the ball-handling, distributing skills to run the point
  • Will struggle guarding bigger shooting guards, especially in post-up situaitons
  • Can improve in one-on-one iso situations taking defenders off the bounce
  • Creating for teammates

    Summary: With Mizzou's terrific season, Denmon has gained more exposure on the national level as an NBA prospect. He still has some limitations; most notably, it is his size that hurts his stock. Denmon plays with terrific effort though, can get after it on the defensive end, and shoot the three, which might land him a spot in the second round.

    Player Comparison: Gary Neal. Neal has found a home with the Spurs due to his ability to provide a spark off the bench with his outside shooting and ability to play defense. Those are the two attributes that Denmon will have to rely on at the next level. Neal has played the point some but is probably at his best when he is at the two. Denmon is more naturally a shooting guard, but could maximize his potential by learning how to play point guard at times.
