NBA Comparison: Thabo Sefolosha/Andre Roberson

Strengths: A lock down defender who has potential to be utilized in the same role at the next level ... Has good size for an NBA wing (6’5” and 195 pounds, and a 7 foot wingspan) ... Very alert and active on defense ... Does a great job disrupting passing lanes ... Uses his length and wingspan to his advantage recording both steals and blocks (3.5 steals and 2.2 blocks per game) ... Great reflexes and timing on his reactions, helping with both blocks and steals ... Really good feel for the game on defense. Seems to be wired to put as much attention on that end as on offense ... He has excellent physical tools ... He really anchored Washington’s 2-3 zone ... Can put the ball on the floor and attack the rim. Can throw it down with ease ... Really dangerous in the open floor ... Capable of making open threes, just needs to get more consistent ... Plays with a lot of energy. Has a good motor ... Solid overall free throw shooting and three point numbers in junior year lead to optimism about his offensive potential ... Considered one of the draft's top individuals off the court ...

Weaknesses: Needs to get more comfortable on offense ... Sometimes forces things a bit ... Shooting needs to improve. Lacks consistency ... Has the ability to make threes, but not yet at a consistent rate ... Great defender, but his offense needs to catch up ... Ball handling needs to improve; handle is a bit loose ... While his defensive numbers improved over his career, his shooting from the field actually regressed from his junior year to his senior year ... As a junior, he averaged 11.2 points per game on 44.5% shooting from the field and 36.5% shooting from 3-point range ... As a senior he averaged 9.1 points per game on 41.5% shooting from the field and 30.5% shooting from 3-point range. Foul shooting has been an overall strength of his (78.2%) for his career, but it has been very up and down at the same time. 71.4% as a freshman and as a junior. 84.1% as a sophomore and 85.1% as a senior ...

Overall: There’s a lot to like about Thybulle from a defensive standpoint ... He blocks shots and gets steals at a phenomenal clip and with improved offensive abilities has the potential to be a really good two-way player in the NBA ... If his offense can improve, the sky is the limit to what he can accomplish ... If his offense remains shaky, he projects to be much more of a defensive specialist ... He’s one of those players where fit matters a lot ... He needs to get with a team that is able to utilize his unique skillsets and be patient with him as he develops ... He’ll probably need to spend some time in the G-League, underscoring the importance of finding that right fit ...

Notes: Projected as a potential late first round pick, despite a lack of offensive proficency ... Skipped the NBA Draft Combine leading to rumors of a promise in the first round ...
