6,7 - Small Forward - Memphis
At 6,7 and 220 pounds with long arms and good strength Thomas has the perfect small forward body. He is an explosive leaper who can dunk the ball with the best of them. Plays above the rim and elevates effortlessly. Very quick first step and really explodes into the dribble drive.
Has become a very good three point shooter from college range. Developed this area of his game more quickly than I would have expected and now projects as a legit NBA three point shooter. Plays all aspects of the game at a high level and is a complete basketball player. Very smart with the ball and has good court vision and awareness.
A good kid with excellent work ethic and sportsmanship.
Will have to learn to become more assertive on offense and a more vocal leader but that should come with experience. Needs to improve his ball handling and continue to extend the range on his outside shot.
Projection: Lottery pick in the 2013 NBA Draft
