2012 Draft Profile - Jeremy Lamb

Jeremy Lamb is making a good transition from being a 2nd option on a national champion to star player for UCONN. Lamb has a good all around game for a wing player and has a good track record of playing big in big games. Lamb is a long 6ft5, and a very graceful player. His strength is probably in shooting and scoring the basketball which is what you want in a wing player. Jeremy has range out past the 3pt line and is also good in one on one at separating to create space and hitting a mid range pull up j. He is also an above 80% FT shooter. Lamb is also a sneaky good athlete, on occasion he will blow by his man and finish with a dunk, he can also run the wing on fast break and finish with authority. Jeremy is also active on the defensive end and rebounding. What scouts also really like is the track record of perimeter players from UCONN and their success in the NBA.

As far as weaknesses I would start with adding weight and strength to his upper body. One could easily profile Lamb and assume that in the NBA he is going to stay on the outside and not attack the paint because of his size. I donít think Jeremy has a lot of weaknesses but his ceiling is probably not as high as many of the other young prospects in the draft class.

Jeremy Lamb is making good improvements into his sophomore year as maybe the top perimeter player in the Big East. Lamb looks like a good safe lottery pick, some have compared Lamb to Richard Hamilton, I donít know if he will have Ripís knack for scoring in half court but I think he looks a lot like Brandon Rush or Nick Young. I really like Lambís character and development and experience as a winner and big game player, I can see Lamb being a guy that may never make an all star game but still have a nice long career.
