2009 NBA Draft Skills Challenge: Top Shooters

 

2009 NBA Draft HQ!On the most part, the 2009 NBA Draft is not know for deadly long-range shooters. However, there's no doubt that our consensus top shooter Stephen Curry can bomb from long-range. Big-name players like Wayne Ellington, Marcus Thornton, and Jodie Meeks can also heat up from long-range, but all are considered streak shooters. Meanwhile there are less-heralded prospects like Lee Cummard, Toney Douglas, and Jack McClinton, all of whom can hit threes in bunches.

 

As part of our NBA Draft Skills Challenge series, CHN experts rank the Best Shooters in the Draft.  Click on player name for profile & scouting report. Our experts rankings will be updated once the official Entry list is finalized.
