The Los Angeles Lakers met with Nate Wolters and Adonis Thomas among other prospects on the first day of the combine.
Hoopsworld’s Alex Kennedy is reporting that the Lakers are taking a close look at both Nate Wolters and Adonis Thomas, two intriguing studs who could make an impact at the next level.
Wolters is definitely someone that this club could use in the Black Mamba’s absence, as he’s a born scorer who isn’t afraid to continuously pull up and fire away from anywhere on the court.
During his senior year at South Dakota State, the 6’4” guard averaged 22.3 points, 5.8 assists and 5.6 rebounds in 38.1 minutes per game. He shot 48.5 percent from the field and 37.9 percent from deep—respectable numbers for a guy who was often the focus of opposing defenses.
Adonis Thomas on the other hand
Thomas is a high-upside prospect that many thought would be a lottery pick coming out of high school, but he hasn’t panned out as expected. He’s still a contributor, though, having put up 11.7 points, 4.5 rebounds and 1.9 assists per game in 29.3 minutes per game with the Memphis Tigers.
Thomas’ size is what should have the Lakers intrigued, as he’s a 6’7”, 240-pound swingman who can play multiple positions. He has to work on his three-point shot to truly fit in coach Mike D’Antoni’s system, but he may surprise if the Lakers select him in June.
