Jonathan Daniel

The Spurs take a project in the second round, just right to populate the Toros, or perhaps another D-League roster.

Stats from DraftExpress.com

Thomas doesn't shoot the three reliably. He is a below average defender.

That said, he can score in bunches and was a leader on and off the floor on a pretty good Ohio State squad. He doesn't turn it over much, so that's good.

He's got outstanding character, despite the fact that he refused to give NBA teams, including the Spurs, his phone number. Pretty unusual, but aren't the Spurs a pretty unusual bunch? He also has a son.

I see him ending up better than Marcus Denmon: a guy who could ball in college, but probably will never do much in the league. Thomas will end up on someone's roster eventually, because he can score, but his defensive deficiencies and lack of consistent range will keep him from ever making much of a mark.
