Draft Express: Thomas Refusing Competitive Workouts?

Draft Express: Thomas Refusing Competitive Workouts?

Postby JSM on Fri Jun 02, 2006 10:23 pm

Draft Express: As of right now, it appears that Tyrus Thomas will not be working out competitively against anyone in any workout for a team drafting outside the top 3, and will not be working out for any teams period outside the top 3. From what we’ve been told, much like what happened with Gerald Green last year, teams are threatening to take a stand and not draft him if he continues to refuse to work out for them, or if he refuses to go up against anyone but the coaching staff. Thomas was reportedly seen out on the town in Miami this past weekend and apparently is telling anyone who is willing to listen that he is guaranteed to be drafted #2 by the Chicago Bulls. Right now, the Bulls have a workout set on June 19th featuring J.J. Redick, Rudy Gay and Adam Morrison, with the last spot being saved for Thomas. It will be very interesting to see whether he is advised to attend that workout, and what the fallout of that decision might be.

tanking a workout because it could hurt your stock is not exactly a sign of great competetiveness...

His agents have to be the worst of anyone in the draft. They are making some big mistakes and it's going to hurt Thomas' stock. This is going to end up hurting him, just like it hurt Green last year.

the five games i saw him play in this year i was not impressed by anything other than his terrific athleticism. i see a great athlete with not much of any kind of game. he's a long-term project. i don't blame him for not wanting to workout for teams. and as far as us, i just don't think he's even close to the kind of hlep we need.
