Chase Budinger
Ht/Wt: 6-7 / 190 lbs
Position: SG/SF
Team: Arizona
Class: Junior



2009 Draft Profile - Chase Budinger

Budinger is a very talented SG/SF and is a valuable asset to the Arizona Wildcats team. At 6’7 Budinger can potentially become a very good 2 guard in the NBA. He has the stroke from 18 feet and out. He also has the ability to take the ball to the cup. Budinger is an athletic player and can jump through the ceiling of arenas thanks to his volleyball playing at La Costa Canyon High School. Aside from his offensive game, Budinger can play defense as well as any other player in the NCAA. With his lateral quickness, he should be able to stay in front of his defensive assignment at the next level and can also be a lock down defender in the NBA. Budinger has improved from his Freshman campaign in Arizona in almost every statistical category. He has the tools (scoring mentality, defensive awareness, athleticism, and his extraordinary leaping ability is a plus) and just needs to raise the bar at the next level. If Budinger decides to play in the NBA, he will become better and has the chance to be a key reserve.

2008 Draft Profile - Chase Budinger

Budinger is a real wild card here in that he has the size (6’7”), quickness, and shooting ability to be a VERY good SG in the L. If he is slotted in at SF, he might have a little more trouble, but should hold his own. He has an inside/outside game with a sweet stroke and moves well without the ball. On D, he has the quickness to stay with his man and is big enough to defend post up situations. Very good in the open floor and comes from a top program (although, one in decline right now).

Draft Profile provided by: Lawrence Woods - Chase Budinger could use another year at Arizona with Coach Lute Olson coming back and incoming freshman Brandon Jennings taking over to prove he can lead a team when he is the number one scoring threat. He has all of the athletic ability needed for an NBA shooting guard, but he needs to develop the other areas of his offensive game for those nights when his shot is not falling. He is a good spot up shooter and has NBA range second only to O.J. Mayo in this draft. Chase is not as good of a ball handler or all around offensive threat as Chris Douglas-Roberts, who also has a back to the basket game and will play the same position in the NBA . He has the ability to become a good defensive player but he did regress this year under a defensive coach in Kevin O'Neil which leads me to believe he will have similar struggles if he is drafted by a team in the defensive minded eastern conference. Definitely needs to play for a west cost team like Sacramento, Golden State, Seattle or Phoenix. Could project to be a more athletic Quinton Richardson, Kyle Korver or Wally Sczerbiak.

2007 Draft Profile

Has excellent size and athleticism for the NBA 2-guard position, possessing a scorer's mentality. He’s always looking for his shot, which has improved considerably in the past year, especially shooting from outside. Finishes well around the basket, with good touch and body control. His range is beyond the college 3-point line and a great stroke on his jump shot. Is an excellent rebounder for a player his size, good leaping ability, aggressively attacks the basket, and finishes well in traffic using his explosiveness. His ball handling needs work and he needs to add strength. Lacks great lateral quickness and foot speed on the defensive end and doesn't possess much of an in-between game right now.
