C.J. Massinburg

Height: 6-3

Weight: 195

College: Buffalo

Classification: Senior

Birthdate: 4/14/1997

 

Projected Draft Range: 2nd Round to Undrafted

Pros:

Fairly good shooter, especially from deep

Adequate scorer off the dribble

Prolific scorer

Decent playmaker

Good rebounder

Cons:

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

Summary:

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.
