Klay Thompson was a scoring machine during his three-year career at Washington State, averaging 21.6 PPG.
His numbers have proven he is a potent scorer, but his lack of versatility has him going in the mid-first round.
Thompson has many problems when it comes to the fundamentals. His lack of proper footwork and less-than-impressive dribbling ability has many NBA scouts questioning his ability to translate his scoring to the next level.
However, like many of his counterparts in the NCAA, Thompson does the majority of his scoring without dominating the ball. Working off-the-ball screens, pick-and-rolls, as well as catch-and-shoot sets is where Thompson has proven he can be effective in the NBA.
With his high-releasing sniper of a jump shot, Thompson could be a great player in any system that uses fluid off-the-ball movement.
It's truly a rarity that you find a player that has the knowledge of off-the-ball movement with such dynamic scoring.
If Thompson can improve his defense as well as basic mechanics, he could be incredibly productive and get plenty of burn in the NBA.
