Sindarius Thornwell is a 6-5 shooting guard that can score the basketball.  He can manuever his way to garner buckets in the paint, as he has worked hard to significantly improve his jump shot.  Also, he has shown that he can run the point if he is needed to do so.

​On the other hand, he can be prone to forcing the issue too much on offense, and he has been a ball-dominant player that may struggle if he plays off the ball.  He will need to show NBA teams that he does not need the basketball in his hands to be effective, though Thornwell’s ability to score could make him an enticing option in the second round of the 2017 draft.
