Klay Thompson SG/SF
21 years old, Junior
2011 stats: 34 games, 21.6 ppg, 5.2 rpg, 3.7 apg, 43% FG, 40% 3ptFG, 84% FT
Prediction: Late lottery to mid first round
Strengths: Probably the purest shooter in the draft. Son of former #1 overall draft pick(1978) Mychal Thompson. Has a NBA skill and it’s shooting the basketball. He has range beyond the NBA three point line. Is good running off of screens catching and shooting the ball and uses his dribble well to set up space to get his shot off. Has a pretty good game from mid-range and uses his height to his advantage to score over smaller defenders.
Weaknesses: Isn’t a great athlete at all. Doesn’t score the ball well in traffic slashing to the basket. Is a horrible defender as well. Has trouble at times scoring over athletic defenders his size.
