My Wizards Sleeper Pick at # 6: KLAY THOMPSON


Do you want the best pure shooter in the draft? Someone who is 6'6" and we can slot him right into our massive hole at Small Forward. If we re-sign Nick Young it would be an absolute nightmare to have 2 excellent shooters who can create their own shot on the floor at the same time. People will say #6 will be too high to take him, but I say if he can fill that massive void at Small Forward then you don't worry about it being too high- You just make the pick!

Strenths analysis from nbadraft.net:

"Strengths: One of the top pure shooters on the college level ... Prolific outside shooter with a defined role for the NBA level ... Right hander who at 6'6 with long arms has good size for the NBA 2-guard position ... Shows an excellent feel having been around the game his entire life. Understands his limitations and plays within his game well ... Plays well off the ball. Stays active. Works hard to create scoring opportunities. Understands how to create shots for himself off the ball coming off screens ... Very good spot up shooter ... Comfortable handling the ball and can use the dribble to create shots ... Can use his left hand effectively ... Shows an advanced in between game with tear drops and the use of the glass ... Effectively uses pump fakes to draw defenders off balance ... Has perfect form on his shot and deep range. Squares to the basket. Quick, concise, fluid stroke with a high release ... Gets his shot off quickly and can do so without needing much space ... Exhibits prudent shot selection ... Large wingspan allows him to play more athletic than he appears. Can dunk on his defenders if he catches opponents napping ... Solid decision maker with a positive a/to ratio ... 1.6 steals per game as a senior showed his progression as a defender / anticipation ... Extremely level headed, doesn't show a great deal of emotion or get rattled easily ..."
