6-7 – Small Forward – Ohio State
A high flying athlete who has rounded out his game and now does a lot of things well.
Thompson is a big time athlete who can jump out of the gym and has great timing and body control. A natural slasher who makes a living with his quickness and ability to elevate. Has a natural instinct to attack the rim.
Shots a high percentage from the floor and doesn’t force many shots. Is an improved three point shooter with really nice form.
Is not a great scorer and isn’t likely to become a primary option on offense in the NBA. Doesn’t dominate on defense either.
Will have to expand his range and master the corner three to stick in the league.
Projection: late first to early second round pick in the 2015 NBA Draft
