Sonny Weems: NBA Draft Profile
Accolades: First Team All-SEC (08), SEC All-Tournament Team (07), Honorable Mention All-American – junior college (06), All-Tournament Team – junior college national tournament (06), Third Team All-American – junior college (05).
Scouting Report: An athletic scoring wingman.
Strengths: An explosive leaper. Good outside shot – three-point range. Good elevation and extension on his jumper. Able to knock down shots over defenders. Good wingspan. Athletic. Solid build. Capable of big scoring games – poured in 20 or more points in 10 games this year, including 31 against Indiana in the NCAA tournament. Decent rebounder for a wing player. Good free throw shooter.
Weaknesses: Needs to improve his ball-handling to play the wing in the NBA. Doesn’t always play aggressive enough. Needs to become a better defender. Still very inconsistent. Has to cut down on his turnovers – more turnovers than assists in college. Only played two seasons of D1 basketball. Will be 22-years-old when the season begins.
Projected 2008 Draft Range: Mid to late second round pick.
Consensus: Weems is a borderline NBA prospect. His athleticism and length may get him into the League, but more than likely he is bound for the D-League or Europe.
