2012 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Hollis Thompson


Position: Small Forward

Size: 6-8, 205

School: Georgetown, Junior


Strengths:
  • Three-point shooter
  • Catch-and-shoot ability
  • Quick release
  • Mid-range game
  • Pull-up jumper
  • Can post up smaller defenders
  • Length
  • Athleticism



    Weaknesses:
  • Too often settles for jump shots
  • Assertiveness attacking the basket
  • Creating for teammates
  • Ball-handling
  • Needs to get stronger

    Summary: After briefly testing the waters last summer, Thompson wisely decided to return for his junior year and became more of a focal point for Georgetown. However, he still didn't do enough to warrant being a first-round pick. He has good size and length for a NBA small forward and can shoot the ball from deep, but his lack of toughness and ability to attack the rim should have him hoping he will hear his name called sometime in the second round.

    Player Comparison: James Jones. Jones has found his niche in the NBA as a role player who can provide instant offense with his perimeter shooting, but is fairly limited with the rest of his game. Thompson will enter the league with that same M.O., and unless he really develops his all-around game, he projects to be a Jones-like weapon due to his smooth outside shot.
