Summary:

Chris Clemons is a score-first combo guard that can get buckets at will.  He is only one of ten players to have scored 3000 or more points in his collegiate career, and a majority of those players that reached that mark went on to play in the NBA.  Clemons may have a game that resembles closely to former New York Knicks’ guard, Nate Robinson, and Clemons is a player that could potentially end up being a second round pick in the upcoming draft.
