2009 NBA DRAFT NBA Mock Draft - Top 100 Prospects - NBA Team Needs/Capsules - 2010 Draft


Lee Cummard


College: BYU

Class: Senior

Position: SG/SF

Height: 6’7”

Weight: 190lbs


Accolades: Second Team High-Major All-American - CHN (09), First Team All-MWC (09), Fourth Team High-Major All-American - CHN (08), Honorable Mention All-American - AP (08), MWC co-Player of the Year (08), First Team All-MWC (08), MWC All-Tournament Team (08), Third Team All-MWC (07), MWC All-Tournament Team (07), Arizona Player of the Year - high school (04).


Scouting Report: An experienced, efficient shooting guard.


Strengths: Great shooter. Has three-point range - hit over 350 three-pointers for his career. Extremely efficient - shoots for an outrageously high % from the field for a wing player. Active player - always moving on the court - good at moving without the ball. Nice length for a guard. Superb free throw shooter. Very good rebounder for his position. Good passer. Smart and crafty player. Takes good care of the ball. Very mature and experienced. Very versatile - can help a team in many different ways - passing, rebounding, scoring, etc.


Weaknesses: 24-years-old already. Lacks “upside”. Didn’t play in a BCS conference. Needs to get bigger/stronger for the NBA. Not an NBA-level athlete. Seemed to wear down at the end of his senior year - only shot 40% from the field over his last 10 games. Will have trouble creating his own shot in the NBA. Will struggle guarding quick/strong NBA wing players.


Projected 2009 Draft Range: Mid to late second round pick.


Consensus: Lee Cummard’s shooting touch and heady play will probably get him a shot at the NBA. How much his lack of athleticism and strength holds him back will be the key factor in whether or not he enjoys a long NBA career.
