2023 Draft Profile - Amen Thompson

Jonathan Wasserman - Bleacher Report - June 21st: "His playmaking and defense are the selling points."

Gary Parrish - CBS Sports - June 20th: "...a prospect who is maybe just a reliable jump shot away from the kind of stardom his talent otherwise suggests is possible to achieve."

NBA Draft Room - May 16th: "Amen is a great passer, an incredible athlete and has great size but needs to shoot the ball better."

John Fanta - Fox Sports - May 12: "There's a risk involved with this pick because Thompson's jumper and halfcourt skillset carry more questions than answers at the moment but his ability to read the floor at his size is too strong to pass on."

Tyler Byrum and Chase Hughes - NBC Sports - May 8th: "He's an elite ballhandler with a wide range of ball moves and a natural playmaker who can find a way to pass the ball to any teammates on the floor."

Bryan Kalbrosky - For the Win - May 5th: "Amen Thompson is one of the most physically gifted prospects in this draft class and, while a bit turnover prone, he is an incredible playmaker as well."

Krysten Peek - Yahoo! Sports - Jan. 30th: "A versatile guard who can play on or off the ball, the combination of Thompson's quick first step, decision-making while getting downhill and defensive toughness makes him an intriguing prospect at No. 3. Like his twin brother, Ausar, he is crafty around the rim and a meticulous student of the game."

Tyler Byrum - NBC Sports - Jan. 16: "Questions about the Thompson brothers' shooting will follow them up until draft night. But when you look at the sheer athleticism and show-stopping ability of Amen Thompson, you can just tell he's a top-five pick."

Jonathan Wasserman - Bleacher Report - Jan. 5th: "While debate still swirls around his shooting—whether it can improve and how it would affect his outlook if it doesn't—Thompson still offers enough scoring potential with his transition play, handle/quickness for creating and elevation into two-point short shots/finishes."
