Top NBA Draft Prospects in the Big East, Part Five (#11-15)
October 11, 2013


Matt Kamalsky

A consensus top-100 recruit in high school, Kellen Dunham struggled at times as freshman, but nonetheless finished the year averaging 9.4 points and 2.7 rebounds per-game for a Butler team that won 27 games.

Standing 6'6 with a skinny frame that he'll need to continue improving in the coming seasons, Dunham has nice size for a wing, but lacks great strength and athletic ability.

What makes Dunham a potentially interesting long-term NBA prospect is his ability to shoot the ball from the perimeter. Though he struggled from deep late in the season, he made 38% of his jump shots last year according to Synergy Sports Technology. Shooting the ball with a quick trigger and great range both spotting up and running off of screens, Dunham also flashed the ability to put the ball on the floor and pull-up from the midrange. Though he possesses an average first step, his release allowed him to get off a shot when he was able to create even a little separation.

With 90% of his shots coming from the perimeter, Dunham didn't venture inside often, and struggled when he did. Shooting 44% at the rim in finishing situations, his lack of strength and athleticism limited him at times. A tremendous foul shooter, drawing contact more frequently when he does choose to drive would boost his overall scoring efficiency.

A high IQ player, Dunham plays a low mistake brand of basketball, and doesn't force the action with his dribble. Despite taking some off balance shots, and struggling for stretches, he still scored a very impressive 1.015 points per-possession as a freshman. With Rotnei Clarke and Andrew Smith graduating, Dunham will take on a bigger role offensively this season and it is entirely likely that his role will continue to grow as his game matures.

Defensively, Dunham plays with a solid motor, but his lack of lateral quickness is concerning from a NBA perspective. He'll need to maximize his frame to become more formidable on this end of the floor, but may never be better than an average individual defender.

Only a freshman, Dunham is a ways away from being a finished product, but his shooting and scoring ability drew the attention of scouts, who will be monitoring how he responds to a growing offensive workload in the coming seasons.
