Ryan Thompson is a versatile wing whose brother (Jason Thompson) plays with the Kings having a succesful rookie season, now his brother dreams of joining him in the NBA. He's putting up excellent numbers (32 games: 18.0ppg, 6.5rpg, 3.2apg, 1.8spg, FGP: 50.9%, 3Pts: 42.2%, FT: 77.3%). This was his first season since high school playing without his brother at his side but he led Rider to a solid season.
The NBA Draft is over, but as history indicates, there are still some NBA-caliber rookies without a team.

So, let's take a look at some guys from this year's class who can make an impact in the NBA despite being passed over on Thursday.

Things don't always play out as they should, though.
