What the experts say

NBAdraft.net » Ideal size and strength for the position … A standout scorer with the ability to knock down shots as well as strong penetration ability … Has a pretty pull-up off the dribble and has range well past NBA 3-point ... Quality ball handler ... Polished one-on-one skills

Draftexpress.com » Unless he’s able to lead his team to the NCAA Tournament, he may not have many more big games to prove himself, which could make him slightly more difficult to project when he enters the draft, whether it’s this year or after his senior season. Regardless, Lillard has certainly established himself as a hot name in NBA draft circles.

St. Mary’s coach Randy Bennett » “He scored ... but he’s more than that. He can pass, too. He can make plays for others. He can find open guys. He knows the looks, the rolls, the throwbacks. He’s a good player, a really good player.”
