2011 NBA Mock Draft: Tristan Thompson Impresses in Workouts

2011 NBA Mock Draft: Tristan Thompson Impresses in Workouts SLAM Online was on-hand to see Texas forward, Tristan Thompson work out with John Lucas Basketball Resources, and they came away impressed with the big man's fundamentals and overall performance. “Doing his best impression of a human pogo stick, the Canadian big man was easily the best of the group throughout the drills that involved grabbing the ball from high off of the glass and going right back up with it. Many have envisioned TT as a high energy, active guy and these workouts only made a more telling case for his likely success in this area.” This bodes well for Thompson, who measured well at the combine (6.2 BMI, 7'1.25” wingspan, 9'0.5” standing reach), so he stock could definitely climb for the late-round lottery picks looking for size. Must Read: Full 1st-Round Mock, What Will New York, Boston & More Get? Yao Ming and Chuck Hayes are free agents in Houston, so the Rockets could use size, despite them needing a point guard. Philly definitely needs size, but at No. 16 they may not be in play for Thompson. Indiana is possibly losing Jeff Foster and Josh McRoberts, so they could also be in the market for Thompson at No. 15.
