Makes sense, but I really think they should rather take Hibbert. I think it's very risky to say Thompson is NBA ready. He has the size and experience but during his entire college career, not even once he played against a NBA caliber big man and actually played against just one decent team in the last two years (N.Dame in 06-07 when they lost by 50 and he scored 9 points and grabbed 6 rebounds.
