Though streaky and inconsistent at times, Lamb will likely be the first shooting guard to come off the board on draft night. He possesses a capable all-around offensive attack and is a gifted athlete with terrific length. Lamb should fall somewhere in the mid-late lottery depending on team needs.
Here’s where we have Jones in our latest mock draft:
16. Houston (from NY)- Jeremy Lamb, SG, UConn, 6-5, So.
In addressing their need for size with their earlier pick, a shooting guard like Jeremy Lamb would allow the Rockets to possibly move Kevin Martin via trade. A point guard is another option since Goran Dragic is a free agent and Kyle Lowry is reportedly unhappy in Houston.
