NBA Mock Draft Pick #28 — Khyri Thomas, Guard, Creighton

SB Nation’s Golden State Warriors blog Golden State of Mind explains the pick:

The Warriors must make a decision if it comes down to wings like Melvin Frazier and Josh Okogie or players like Khyri Thomas. Do you take the smaller player with a better all-around game (Thomas) or pick the taller wing with a less-developed game (Frazier and Okogie). Thomas fits the mold of a Warriors player. He’s fast, thrives on the fast-break and turns defense into offense. If he’s still around at pick 28, he’ll be tough to pass up.From watching him play, it’s easy to see that Thomas is a natural baller on both ends of the floor. He attacks the rim with athleticism and control and also showcases a smooth jumper. Despite his height, Thomas is quite strong, with a surprising 6-10 wingspan, likes to play on the run, and plays larger than his size.
