Thread: Ryan Thompson at 57th overall?

    Default Ryan Thompson at 57th overall?

    Depending on what happens on draft night, if the Pacers still have the Mavericks 57th overall pick i would seriously consider Ryan Thompson, here's my own evaluation based on the research I collected:

    BASKETBALL EVALUATION SHEET
    NAME: Ryan Thompson
    POSITION: SG/SF
    HEIGHT: 6-6
    WEIGHT: 215
    SCHOOL: Rider
    AGE: 22
    SKILLS EVALUATION

    ATHLETICISM SIZE DEFENSE STRENGTH QUICKNESS LEADERSHIP
    7 8 7 7 8 8
    JUMP SHOT NBA READY BALL HANDLING/REBOUNDING POTENTIAL
    8 7 8 7
    PASSING/POST SKILLS INTANGIBLES
    7 9
    FINAL GRADE: 91
    STRENGTHS: great scorer, comes from great bloodlines (brother is Jason Thompson), great outside shooter, good length, can attack the basket, high basketball IQ, moves very well without the ball, can handle the ball, great court vision, great team player, gives full effort on defense, smart and savvy defender, aggressive rebounder who fights for every rebound, good passer,


    WEAKNESSES: only an average athlete, level of competition is a serious question mark, doesn’t move well laterally, a jack of all trades but a master of none, may lack that one exceptional quality needed to stick with an NBA team

    yeah he wouldn't be a bad pick in the late 2nd round. he'd at least be worth giving a shot on because we might very well end up with a steal on our hands (look at our A.J. Price choice...although Price should have gone a lot higher but had injuries/off-court problems that might have moved him back to the 52nd pick last year).

    Pass. I'd rather have N'Diaye at #57. Pacers need a b/u C more than another b/u wing.
