About Landry Shamet
Landry Shamet is a tremendous jump shooter with excellent mechanics who showed improvement as a playmaker over his two full seasons at the college level. A consensus top-200 recruit in the high school class of 2015, Shamet looked like a cinch to play a bench role at Wichita State as a true freshman, but hurt his foot after just two games and redshirted. Bouncing back in a major way for the Shockers as a sophomore, Shamet earned Missouri Valley Conference Rookie of the Year honors and a spot on the All-Conference First Team while establishing himself as one of the nation’s premier shooters. Bumping up to the AAC this season, Wichita State held on to a spot in the top-25 all season thanks in large part to Shamet, who averaged 14.9 points and 5.2 assists per game earning All-AAC First Team honors and guiding the Shockers to a return trip to the NCAA Tournament.
Chris Dortch feature: Shamet steadily becomes solid NBA Draft prospect
- Measured 6’5.25 in shoes with an average 6’6.75 wingspan and lean 189-pound frame at the 2018 NBA Draft Combine. Has solid size for a combo guard, but would benefit from continuing to get stronger.
- Played a significant role for Gregg Marshall’s Shockers finishing as the team’s leading scorer and top passer alongside a number of reliable shooters and interior options. Showed marked improvement as a scorer and passer out of ball screen actions, but did his best work off the ball scoring spot up jumpers and designed actions from the inside and out with elite efficiency.
- Engaged defender who lacks a degree of versatility due to his average length and lateral quickness. Does some little things hustling and communicating. Embraces team concepts helping and stunting. Will need to maximize his frame to help him guard more physically on the perimeter at the NBA level.
