Draft Notes

Thomas is a long, physical and aggressive guard who really gets after it on defense. His strength,
athleticism and excellent length allow him to guard 3 positions, making him a versatile defender and one of the best defensive prospects in the draft.

Strengths

  • Athleticism
  • Wingspan/length allowing him to play bigger than his 6-3 height
  • Lateral quickness and agility
  • Defensive intensity and effort
  • Shot selection and improved accuracy (shooting over 50% from the floor and over 40% from 3 on nearly 5 attempts per game)
  • Impacts all aspects of the game and does all the dirty work
  • Has become an excellent 3 point marksman
  • A ball-hawk who puts a ton of pressure on the ball handler
  • Has developed into an excellent free throw shooter
  • Has become a more creative ball-handler and learned to get his own shot
  • Can score from all three levels
  • A natural slasher who excels at taking the ball into the lane and using his length and athleticism to score in traffic
  • NBA ready

Weaknesses

  • Might be more of a glue-guy than a star at the next level
  • Doesn’t have ideal height for the 2 position (but makes up for it with length)

Comparisons

  • Poor man’s Donovan Mitchell
  • Bigger Terry Rozier
