Pros:

Solid scorer off the dribble
Excels at scoring on off-ball motion plays
Decent playmaker
Good rebounder
Solid defender that can get steals and blocks
Gifted athlete
Good motor

Cons:

Needs to improve his shooting
Needs to improve his free throw shooting

Can tend to over-dribble into traffic, which can lead to turnovers

Summary:

Amen Thompson is a very athletic, energetic point forward that could be one of the best prospects to watch next year.  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, but he is a very talented prospect that could be a likely lottery pick for the 2023 draft.
