NBA Draft Profile: Doron Lamb
Doron Lamb - SG - 6'5 – 199lbs.
Lamb made it a point of emphasis to work on the weak points of his game in his sophomore season, which is a testament to his work ethic. As a freshman, he came to Kentucky with an exceptional jump-shot, but his passing, finishing ability and defence left a lot to be desired. The biggest improvement came in his court vision, and when Kentucky needed to take pressure off Marquis Teague, Lamb was able to run the pick-and-roll consistently with good results . His strength will always be his silky smooth jumper, which has seemingly unlimited range in both catch-and-shoot situations and off the dribble. Lamb's head-fakes and use of off-the-ball screens will help him create room for that jumper at the next level.
He has the frame to play shooting guard in the NBA, and his 6'7 wingspan helps make up for a lack of athleticism. His shooting ability (47% from three) leads to comparisons with Jason Terry and Cuttino Mobley. If he adds some bulk and tightens up his handle, he can reach and possibly exceed the accomplishments of those players.
ESPN's Chad Ford sums up Lamb by writing, “Lamb isn't the all-around talent that the other four draft candidates from Kentucky are. However, he's one of the two or three best shooters in the draft.”
