2011 NBA Mock Draft: Charlotte Bobcats Select Klay Thompson with 19th Pick
Weight: 206 lbs.
Comparison: Martell Webster/Marco Belinelli
Thompson needs to add some strength and improve his ball-handling, but he does have some very important foundational skills in place.
Most importantly, this guy can really shoot. In his three years at Washington State, he's averaged 18 points a game while shooting 39 percent from three-point range. And he's shown he can hit from NBA range.
The Bobcats could really use some help at just about every position, but adding a dynamic wing could help replace the scoring they lost when they traded Gerald Wallace.
