No. 3: Seth Lundy, Penn State 

A former teammate of Lamar Stevens, Seth Lundy epitomizes the tough-shot maker. The senior shot around 40% from three-point range last year, and he was most effective without the ball in his hands. Defensive contests didn’t seem to bother him much, and he possesses a keen sense of the game. Lundy has a knack for finding open space and excels at repositioning himself to get open. Shooting off screens and handoffs is a particular strength of his that should translate well to the next level.

When he’s forced off the three-point line, Lundy’s crafty finishing ability and strength make him a decent scorer around the rim. While he may not explode through defenders vertically, he possesses a great touch and can be creative in finding ways to get his shot off.

Defensively, Lundy’s strength, hands, and basketball IQ make him impactful on that end of the floor. Reminiscent of his former teammate Stevens, Lundy may not be the quickest, but his strength and effort allow him to contribute effectively. He plays with a “Junkyard Dog” mentality, much like Stevens did, and it shows in his defensive efforts and rebounding.

Lundy’s potential to become a true three-and-D player makes him an excellent choice for the Cavs at the 49th pick in the 2023 NBA Draft.
