2013 NBA Draft Scouting Report: C.J. McCollum


Position: Shooting Guard

Size: 6-3, 197

School: Lehigh, Senior


Strengths:
  • Pure scorer
  • Three-point shooting
  • Pull-up jumper
  • Catch-and-shoot ability
  • Moves well off the ball
  • Free throw shooter
  • Creating his own shot
  • Can break down defenders off the bounce
  • Rebounds well for his size
  • Solid defender




  • Weaknesses:
  • Is he a point guard or shooting guard at the next level?
  • Doesn't have quickness to cover NBA point guards/size to guards NBA shooting guards
  • Not a true distributor
  • Explosiveness


  • Summary: McCollum really made a splash in Lehigh's upset win against Duke in the first round of the 2012 NCAA Tournament. A season-ending broken foot during his senior campaign didn't really effect McCollum's stock at all as he is still considered a mid-late lottery selection. The biggest question is whether he plays the two or the point at the next level but either way, McCollum knows how to score the rock.

    Player Comparison: Ben Gordon/Randy Foye. Think of McCollum in a Foye/Gordon/Jason Terry mold of a shooting guard who might be forced to try and transition to the point due to a lack of ideal size, but is more comfortable playing a shooting guard role. I think McCollun is best suited being a top reserve who can provide some offense off the bench like the roles Foye/Gordon/Terry have played for most of their careers. Defensively, McCollum will face the same challenges as that trio due to a lack of a true position.
