Amen Thompson is a very athletic, energetic point forward that could be one of the best prospects to come out of this draft.  He thrives at attacking the hoop to score and get assists, and he is a high-flyer that can make impressively athletic plays on both ends of the floor.  He will need to improve his jump shot, especially from beyond the arc, but he is a very talented prospect that could be a top 5 pick in the 2023 draft.
