Khyri Thomas is an athletic combo guard that has excelled as a fill in the blanks type of player for his team. He is a hard nosed, power guard that plays with physicality, and he can score in a variety of ways. Plus, he is a tough defender that will get after it on that end of the floor.
He may need to improve his ball handling and make different types of jump shots when he is on the floor, but NBA scouts and teams seem to like his skill set and competitiveness, as he could end up being a potential first round pick in the upcoming draft.
