C.J. Massinburg

Page updated as of 4/12/2020, scouting report written by Alan Lu.
2019 rankings were finalized on 6/19/2019.

Height: 6-3

Weight: 195

College: Buffalo

Classification: Senior

Birthdate: 4/14/1997

Projected Draft Range: 2nd Round to Undrafted


Fairly good shooter, especially from deep

Adequate scorer off the dribble

Prolific scorer

Decent playmaker

Good rebounder


Can struggle to score in traffic

Can be too scoring focused on offense

May be often hidden on weaker matchups defensively
Not a true point guard, but is undersized to play the two

Not an elite athlete


C.J. Massinburg is a score-first, combo guard that can get buckets at will, and he was able to score 43 points to help engineer a win over West Virginia early in the season, and he also scored 25 points in a victory over Syracuse.

Right now, he may be a second round prospect for the upcoming draft.  He is a prolific scorer that can get buckets in a variety of ways, but concerns about his athleticism, playmaking, and defensive skills could be potential road blocks.  In a favorable scenario, he could end up making his way to the association and end up being a similar player to former San Antonio Spurs’ guard, Gary Neal in the NBA.
