2013 NBA Draft Prospect Profile: Trent Lockett, Shooting Guard, Marquette
Name: Trent Lockett
Position: Shooting Guard
Latest Stats: 7.0 ppg, 5.1 rpg, 1.8 apg
After three seasons at Arizona State, 6-foot-5 guard Trent Lockett opted to leave the Sun Devils for greener pastures at Marquette. In his final season of eligibility, Lockett’s numbers went down however. He averaged 7.0 points and 5.1 rebounds this past season, but from a team perspective, he was able to be apart of the Golden Eagles’ run to the Elite 8. Lockett has decent size for the shooting guard position and in the past he has proven to be a double-digit scorer.
Lockett is not a likely candidate to hear his name called on draft night, but he will be a name to keep an eye upon once summer league rosters are constructed. Worst case scenario, Lockett should have the talent to pursue other professional options if the NBA is not suited for this Marquette-prospect.
Strengths: Lockett has good size at 6-foot-5 and he’s been an efficient scorer for the most part throughout his career. Lockett has the ability to knock down the three ball, but he’s more fit in a role as someone who can put the ball on the floor or get open off it.
Weaknesses: Lockett lacks overall quickness and his outside game can certainly use some work. Lockett has never been a consistent or dangerous perimeter threat, so he needs to expand his range and shooting on the perimeter.
Draft Projection: Undrafted
