He will be widely regarded as a bust though because those numbers don't cut it for a top 5 player.
You just described someone who should go in the mid to late first round.............

If he puts up those numbers and he goes in the top 10, he is a bust. I don't care what you expect of him. Scouts and GMs and a lot of fans are on his jock. Some going so far as to call him the best player/talent in the draft.

Me, personally, I don't know what to expect from him. Honestly, I don't think we got to see enough of him to evaluate him as a player. Most players are known before they hit the NCAA through the HS and AAU circuit. No one knew who Tyrus Thomas was.
