2012 NBA Draft Results: Jeremy Lamb Selected By Rockets With No. 12 Pick

With the No. 12 pick in the 2012 NBA Draft, the Houston Rockets selected Jeremy Lamb from UConn.

Lamb, who took over for Kemba Walker as leading scorer at UConn, is a two-guard with decent size, scoring instinct and athleticism. The key to his NBA potential is a consistent effort, shoring up a shaky but not terrible shooting stroke and being an active defender. He has the quickness and length to stay in front of most NBA shooting guards, but so do plenty of other prospects who, unfortunately, can't put it all in place in the pros. An ankle injury early in workout season hampered Lamb's ability to get in front of more teams.
