Scottie Lewis '19 Selected by Charlotte in NBA Draft
Scottie Lewis ’19 was selected 56th overall by the Charlotte Hornets in the second round of the NBA draft on Thursday evening.
Lewis is the first Shore Conference alum chosen in the NBA Draft since J.R. Smith was drafted in 2004.
Lewis, a McDonald's All-American guard, helped lead the Panthers to an NJSIAA Tournament of Champions title, making history, as Ranney was the first ever Shore Conference team to win the Tournament of Champions.
During his senior year as a Panther, Lewis averaged 17.5 points, 6.3 rebounds, 3.5 assists, 2.7 steals and 1.5 blocks. He shot 56 percent from the field, 75 percent from the free-throw line and 36.5 percent from behind the arc.
