Draft Notes

Shamet is long and lean combo guard who is a lethal three point shooter who plays an overall efficient game. He operates within the flow of the offense, knows how to get teammates involved and is a heady player. He’s a bit thin and light and doesn’t blow you away with athleticism but his length and skill set will make him a commodity at the next level. He projects as a role player off the bench, possibly becoming a starter in his prime.

Strengths

  • Feel for the game – plays the right way, makes the right pass, doesn’t over dribble
  • Is an excellent three point shooter, hitting about 44% over his past two seasons
  • Very efficient with good shot selection – shoots a high percentage 49/44/82
  • A great catch and shoot player who can also get his own shot
  • Has combo guard skills and enough length to guard multiple positions, especially as he adds strength

Weaknesses

  • Needs to get stronger
  • Isn’t the most explosive athlete
  • Doesn’t have the best foot-speed and could get crossed over at the next level


Comparisons

  • Doug Christie
