In the build-up to draft day, Lehigh guard C.J. McCollum has frequently drawn comparisons to Rookie of the Year and former Weber State star Damian Lillard. On Wednesday, the Utah Jazz enlisted the help of someone who should know.

"They have similar games," said Lillard’s former teammate Scott Bamforth. "I think Dame handles the ball a little bit more, but I think they have similar games."

The Jazz worked out both McCollum, a projected lottery pick, and Bamforth, a fringe NBA prospect, but the focus was squarely on the heralded guard out of the Patriot League. The Jazz have no point guards under contract and with the Nos. 14 and 21 picks in the first round are heavily expected to emerge from draft day with at least one point guard.

McCollum, a combo guard who played in only 11 games last year at Lehigh, did his part to assuage any concerns over whether he could play point guard in the NBA.
