Cam Thomas

Updated on 3/31/21.  Written by Alan Lu.

Height: 6-4
Weight: 210
College: LSU
Classification: Freshman
Birthdate: 10/13/2001

2021 Top 100 Prospect Rank: 23
Projected Draft Range: Mid to Late 1st Round

Pros:

Fairly good scorer off the dribble
Decent mid-range shooter
Tremendous free throw generator
Terrific free throw shooter
Handles the ball well
Moves well off the ball on offense
Adequate defender
Good athlete

Cons:

Needs to improve his outside shot
Prone to hoisting up questionable shots
Can be too scoring focused on offense
Not an elite rebounder
Can be undisciplined defensively
Not a true point guard, but is undersized to play the two

Summary:

Cam Thomas is an agile, skilled combo guard that can score the basketball in a variety of ways.  He excels at taking the ball to the rim to score, and he also can comfortably make mid-range jumpers.  However, he will need to improve his outside shot from beyond the arc, and he will need to show that he can effectively run the point at higher levels.  Right now, he currently projects to go in the first round of the 2021 draft.
