Trey Thompkins - Thompkins missed all of last season with a bone bruise in his knee, which, in addition to an underwhelming rookie year, mean his career is off to a slow start. Perhaps a season of recuperation need come before any call-up.

Picks 37 and 38: The L.A. Clippers, picking next, take a look at their roster and decide that Brian Cook needs upgrading. So they take Trey Thompkins out of Georgia, who has plenty of talent but has shown scant little discipline with it thus far. He will now join up with Vinny Del Negro, who famously maximizes the talent of every player he coaches.
When talking about Thompkins, Jay Bilas fires out the burn of the night: "He got his body fat measured at the combine. It came out at fifteen and a half percent, which is pretty good if you're a sea lion." Jeff Van Gundy follows up when he notes that the Clippers have "earned their way" to futility. The Clippers are not being made to look good tonight. Luckily, given the debacle behind the #1 overall pick, no Clippers fans are watching tonight anyway.

The Bulldogs made the tournament for the first time in three years, and for only the second time in a decade. They did so with one quality big (Howard/Trey Thompkins), two quality guards (Travis Leslie and Gerald Robinson), and a load of role players.
Thompkins can play around the basket or on the perimeter, although he demonstrates an increasing affinity for the perimeter, which is not really a good thing. He is trending worryingly backwards with regards to his rebounding numbers, and he's done little to stem the tide of turnovers he still produces. Nonetheless, Thompkins uses his good athletic, slick ball handling, adequate and post-up abilities to be a tough matchup for any defense. Yet while he puts up 2.8 stocks per game, he does so while having little obvious defensive impact, and the same could be said for his offensive production, too. For all his talents, Thompkins has not yet put it together.
