NBA Comparison: Langston Galloway

Strengths: Zegarowski is a lights-out shooter who can efficiently run the point and create for others around him … Smooth, consistent shooting stroke and a 42% career shooter from beyond the arc … Solid 77% from the line as well … Decent rebounder for a guard who is only 6’2 as he is aggressive attacking the ball in the air … Handles the ball very well as he makes up for a lack of speed with crafty handles to get by defenders … Takes care of the ball and often makes the right read and an accurate final pass in the pick and roll and on the drive … Led the Big East with 125 assists and 80 three-pointers in 2020-21 … Fierce competitor and high-motor player who has a quick, smooth release and is able to execute catch and shoot action on the perimeter … An all-around solid offensive player who provides depth and the ability to run the offense and shoot the ball from anywhere on the floor … Has a great understanding for the game and should be able to quickly grasp the complexity of the professional game immediately as a playmaking shooter off the bench …

Weaknesses: Most of the red flags in his game come on the defensive end of the floor. He does not have great length at only 6’2 with an identical wingspan, and he does not make up for it with elite athleticism either … He struggles to match the athleticism of the guards who are his size and the lack of length prevents true contesting ability and the ability to consistently force turnovers and disrupt ball-handlers … Did not finish well in traffic at the college level, which makes it hard to believe he will be able to do so against taller, more physical defenders in the lane in the pros

Notes: Averaged 15.8 PTS, 3.6 REB, 4.3 AST in his junior season at Creighton … 47/42/77 splits in his college career who should be able to match or improve these shooting percentages with less volume and better looks as a role player rather than a star … 2-time All-Big East player (2nd team in 2020, 1st team in 2021)

Notes: Measured 6’0.75” barefoot, 6’2.0” in shoes 8’0.0” standing reach, 180.8 lbs, and 6’2.75” wingspan at the 2021 NBA Draft Combine …
