Look here is scout's grade report on Klay:
Name: Klay Thompson Size: 6’6 200
College/International Team: Washington State
College/International Position: Shooting Guard
NBA Position: Shooting Guard/Small Forward
Immediate Role: Reserve Guard or Starting Shooting Guard
Floor: Reserve Guard
Ceiling: Solid Starting Guard
Offensive Presence- 7.5
Defensive Presence- 7
B-Ball I.Q. – 8.5
NBA Ready- 8
It Factor- No
Overall Grade: 78.5
+ Sound Shooter
- Not A Great Athlete
- Doesn’t Have Great Length
My Take: Thompson is the son of former number one pick Mychel Thompson but he has carved out his own niche as a basketball player. Thompson isn’t the athlete that his father was but he does have a sweet shooting stroke. He doesn’t have the ceiling that teams would like but he doesn’t have a low floor like some younger players.
Thompson will be able to step in immediately and fit into a rotation as a shooter.
So would you use a #11 pick (basically a lottery pick) on a C+ grade player???
