Given that, consider: Thomas is quicker and twice as athletic as Villa ever thought of being. He has a decent midrange J, which he can improve on. He is quick enough to defend most 3's serviceably well, and can improve that too. And with his length he can help on the boards and in defending the lane.
Yes, he is VERY raw, but with experience his skill set can develop.
the reason charlie can play the 3 is because he can actually SHOOT from the perimeter. 3's, midrange, drive the lane... he does it all. did you even watch the ncaa tourney sic? cause if you did, you would have seen ty thomas rarely attempting jumpers, and by rare i mean 1 OR 2 a game... and his FG% on those shots? do you even have to guess? He doesn't have a DECENT midrange J, it's not even average, if only because he's only REALLY started to work on it recently. i agree that at his height/size, he could defend sf's decently.
