Biography: Thomas was a solid contributor in his two seasons at San Diego State and for his team at the Portsmouth Invitational in April. The projected power forward, though, is undersized for his position and that means he might have to wait awhile to hear his name called. Thomas could try to make it as a small forward at the next level but would likely need to work on his jump shot after playing on the inside in college. After transferring from Pepperdine, the San Diego native averaged 11.2 points, 7.9 rebounds and 1.8 blocks in his two seasons with the Aztecs. He posted 11.4 points, 8.1 rebounds and a team-best 2.0 blocks per game as San Diego State finished with a school-record 34 wins and a share of the Mountain West Conference title in 2010-11. The second-team all-conference performer put up similar numbers in three games in Portsmouth, averaging 11.0 points - on 58.3 percent shooting - with 7.7 rebounds and 3.0 blocks. Still, there might be lingering questions about whether he can perform consistently against elite competition after he averaged 8.2 points and 6.6 rebounds in five games against Top 25 opponents in 2010-11. Nonetheless, Thomas is an athletic player who has strong defensive skills, and that could be enough for one team to take a chance in the second round.
