Suns Draft Central

Guard | 6’-3” | 190 lbs. | Lehigh

A four-year player at Lehigh, C.J. McCollum was also the team’s first offensive option all four seasons. Never settling, the guard still found a way to improve his game this past season, as he averaged a career-high 23.9 points per game on an astounding 51 percent shooting from three. McCollum will hear some of the same questions that Stephen Curry heard, though, when the latter came out of Davidson. Was the competition tough enough? Is he big enough to play shooting guard? Can he play the point? McCollum may have answered a few of those questions against solid competition like Baylor, when he went off for 36 points and eight rebounds.

“Through early January, McCollum was well on his way toward reaching his goals, leading the country in scoring at more than 24 points per game, shooting 50 percent from the field, 53 percent from 3 and 84 percent from the free-throw line. Then his season came to an end as shocking as it was abrupt, because the play during which he broke the fifth metatarsal in his left foot in a game against VCU seemed routine.”
