Ausar Thompson is a very athletic, energetic swingman that has a variety of skills that could prove to be useful at the next level.  He excels at attacking the hoop to score and pass the basketball, and he is also a good rebounder and defender.  He’s shown an improved jumper this past season, and he’s consistently played very well in high stakes games in the Overtime Elite league. He will still need to improve his jump shot, but he is a very talented prospect that could end up being a likely lottery pick in the 2023 draft.
