Scouting Report

Hamilton declared for the draft and immediately hired an agent following his sophomore season at Connecticut, likely for one of two reasons. Either he simply decided he was done being on a college campus and needed to leave, or he got some really, really bad advice about his draft stock. Hamilton has the prototypical size for an NBA wing, but other than some brief flashes, the most he proved in two seasons with the Huskies is that he makes poor decisions offensively. Steph Curry can shoot fall-away jumpers from deep and make bad shots look easy; Hamilton cannot. He shot 33.7 percent from 3-point range in his college career and he wasn't much more effective near the rim. Hamilton averaged 12.5 points as a sophomore, not exactly an eye-popping number for a player who had the ball in his hands as much as he did. Hamilton had a prime opportunity to prove any doubters wrong at the predraft camp in Chicago, but all scouts saw was more of the same from his college days - lots of dribbling, not enough quickness to beat defenders off those dribbles and poor shot selection. His best skill that could help him sneak into the bottom of the draft is his defensive rebounding, which is superb for his size and position. It's doubtful that will be enough, though, and Hamilton likely will be playing for a contract in summer leagues after going undrafted.
