2021 Top 100 Prospect Rank: 82

Pros:

Decent scorer off the dribble
Decent low post scorer
Adequate shooter for a big man, has stretch big potential
Excels at scoring on off-ball motion plays
Adequate playmaker
Decent rebounder
Fairly good defender

Good athlete

Summary:

J.T. Thor is an athletic, energetic combo forward that can project into a 3 and D type of role player in the NBA.  He is a high-flyer that can finish plays above the rim, and he also can take people off the dribble to score on drives to the hoop.  He also is a solid rebounder and defender that can guard multiple positions, but he will need to improve his jump shot and be a more consistent player in games.  He is a talented prospect that could be a solid pick in the second round of the 2021 draft.
