Thompson was ranked 17th on Thorpes projection of top rookies in a list that included Greg Oden, Rudy Fernandez, and Marc Gasol .Also ahead of Thompson were Courtney Lee, Roy Hibbert, and Brandon Rush.
This analysis solidifies the thought that Thompson is a top 15 talent in this draft and Im glad to see guys like Arthur and Randolph didnt make the list. Augustine was also left out but that being said he still would have been the better pick for us. heres the link. http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/columns/story?columnist=thorpe_david&page=Rookies-080627
