Well, he plays for LSU, so that might be part of it. Most deep south SEC schools don't care about basketball (I'm at UA). He can really score, haven't gotten to see more than highlights yet, but wonder how far off Christopher and Moody he should be.

He is a straight up gunner with not much else, he has a nice frame and build but plays with little strength, can get his shot off in multiple ways and def has talent, but dunno, feels like at best a bench shooter

i think a microwave bench scorer seems like the right call on his archetype at this point with some room for more potentially, but he's a scorer not just a shooter, and at this point I'm not sure why a bunch of people have Keon in their top20 but not Thomas if that's the archetype you're looking for

Was 6’2 coming out of high school earlier this year, now is 6’4? I bet he measures out at 6’2.5. I just don’t know where I would play him. I guess I would use him as a scoring option off the bench. But these types of players are a dime a dozen.

Keon is like the opposite of a microwave bench scorer.

Lmao Keon's appeal is the Oladipo route, even though he is a bit more polished and less of a freak (still one)

Thomas reminds me of Eddie House

this guy is a stupid good scorer, it's insane how/when/where he can get shots off, NBA-level already.

Just put together a kind of get to know this prospect kind of video for Cam. Dude is a ridiculously talented scorer from pretty much everywhere. Takes too many step back threes (but gets to them with ease) and doesnt care much for passing, but still you'll start to see his name in the late lottery soon.

Yeah he may be only 6'2" but with the way the NBA has changed there's no better time for undersized shooting guards at having a chance to succeed. I see Thomas as a late lottery pick with potential to continue rising.

I think I like him better than Butler, I know I like him better than Dosunmu. Release is quick. At the end of the 1st round, getting a microwave bench scorer that lasts in the NBA is a win.

He looks a little like Kemba Walker at UConn, but he shoots with more range. He needs to pass the ball more.

Definitely. And Dosunmu is very different from both as well.

Just ranking guards towards the back half of the 1st.
