Josh Langford

Updated as of 12/2/2020, scouting report written by Alan Lu.

Height: 6-5
Weight: 210
College: Michigan State
Classification: Senior
Birthdate: 1/15/1997

Projected Draft Range: 2nd Round to Undrafted

Pros:

Fairly good shooter, especially from deep
Solid scorer on the break
Adequate scorer off the dribble
Adequate playmaker
Above average athlete

Cons:

Lacks an elite first step off the dribble
Needs to improve his ball handling, especially when going to his left
Can be too passive on offense
Needs to improve his rebounding
May struggle to guard quicker players
Missed considerable time due to a foot injury
Not an elite athlete

Summary:

Josh Langford is a skilled, 6-5 swingman that can shoot the basketball.  He missed a lot of time due to a foot injury, and so far, he hasn’t really been the same player this season as a redshirt senior.  He might not be the shot creator that he once was, and he will need to be a more consistent defender in games, but Langford’s jump shot could allow him to carve out a career either in the G-League or overseas when his collegiate career ends.
