Inconsistent shooter

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 projects to go in the late first to the second round range for the 2021 draft.
