Klay Thompson

im wondering at 6'6" can he convert his college scoring abilities to the NBA, it'd be wonderful if the grizzlies took a chance on him with one of the later pix if he decided to come out this year, we need all the outside shooting we can get, and the major need is bench depth, a back up shooting guard is much needed, but if we can grab a SG thats starter quality and bench conley im all for it, i think the big picture is to get mayo at the 1 anyway

The big question with his

The big question with his game is athleticism. Is he athletic enough to create his shot against NBA wing players? Athletic enough to defend them?

athleticism aint everything,

athleticism aint everything, and for a bench player im doubting that defense is a big concern, as u might notice eddie house plays NONE...but he can score in bunches, thats the point of having a defensive mind on the floor (Demarre Carrol) he wont score but he will be in the face of the opposition, and if they get around him who do they have to score over? Thabeet...it works in my mind

having

having watched klay quite a few times, he doesn't get rattled, he can stroke from way down town, is an efficient scorer, isnt the most freakish athlete but hes tough to stop, similar game to stephen curry

The NBA always has rooms for pure shooters

Don't see why Klay can't be a solid contributor in the league. He's much more than just being a shooter; High IQ, not a slouch athleticly, and plays well within his capabilities. You will rarely see him force up bad shots. I can see him staying no further than his junior year at Wazzu if he continues his play.

He's a 2nd round prospect,

He's a 2nd round prospect, but so was Kyle Korver....it'll be up to whether he's strong, quick and athletic enough survive in the NBA. He's a nice shooter though..
