2012 NBA Draft: Brew Hoop Draft Board - Pick #9

In a refreshingly clear-cut race, the #8 spot on the Brew Hoop draft board was handily captured by Connecticut SG Jeremy Lamb. Lamb burst onto the scene as a freshman during UConn's surprising run to the NCAA Title, spinning impressive play into larger expectations in his sophomore season. However, like teammate and fellow enigmatic prospect Andre Drummond, Lamb turned in a "disappointing" season. He improved much of his own production, but couldn't bring the team along with him. Much of that blame falls on his attitude, which has been criticized as too "laid back". In terms of measurables, though, there's a lot to like. He's a long guard with decent size who could become a capable defender, and scouts seem confident he'll develop a solid outside shot. Perhaps most exciting: no shooting guard in DraftExpress's Top-100 rankings shot better on two-point attempts, a testament to his mid-range game and ballhandling ability. You get the feeling Lamb could struggle adjusting to the NBA immediately, but it won't be long before he's making a serious impact.

Pick the player YOU would like the Bucks to select, assuming they were drafting at each position - this ain't no mock draft. That means you should take into account need, potential, or (trade) value, and consider which other players are still available.

Poll closes in two days or something.
