NBA Role: scoring two-guard • UnderDOG

After a rocky start to his NBA career, Jeremy Lamb has shown signs of life in the Queen City; a slender swingman w/ an aptitude for scoring the rock, Lamb is a totally different player when fully committed; lulls defenders (and himself?) to sleep with his ‘rock up, shoot’ game – likes to isolate and launch jumpers off the dribble (particularly fading to the left) but is getting better at choosing how to attack after a screen & roll*; spot-up shooting is Lamb’s next challenge on offense: 31% from deep isn’t ideal; has his struggles defensively but is quick & athletic enough to stay in front of guys – now, Lamb must make a point to lock in if he wants an more minutes going forward; someday, Lamb will claim prime real estate in Coach Clifford’s rotation but will it be as a heat-check scorer or something much more?; Charlotte’s undisputed X-Factor
