Rudy Mbemba: NBA Draft Profile

June 1st, 2008

Rudy Mbemba


Team:  Solna Vikings

Birth Year: 1987

Position: PG

Height: 5’11”

Weight: 172lbs


Accolades:  Swedish League All-Star (08).


Scouting Report:  A super fast, high leaping point guard from Sweden. 


Strengths:  Lightning quick.  Explosive leaper – capable of jaw-dropping dunks.  Great rebounder his size and position.  Has three-point range – hit almost three a game this past year.  Good ball-handler.  Big time scorer.  Good assist man.  Gets plenty of steals.


Weaknesses:  Too small for the NBA.  Turnover prone.  Takes too many three-pointers – shot eight a game this season – not what you want from a point guard.  Swedish pro league isn’t one of the most competitive.    


Projected 2008 Draft Range: Mid second round pick to undrafted.


Consensus:  Mbemba has the speed and athleticism to compete in the NBA, but his lack of size and top-notch playing experience probably means he won’t be hitting an NBA court anytime soon.
