Default Los Angeles Clippers draft Trey Thompkins, Travis Leslie in 2011 NBA Draft

The Los Angeles Clippers selected a pair of players from the University of Georgia in the 2011 NBA Draft, held this evening at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey. The Clippers took forward Trey Thompkins with the 37th overall selection and Travis Leslie with the 47th pick.

A versatile big man with a soft shooting touch, Thompkins, 21, averaged 16.4 points per game and 7.6 rebounds during his junior season. Thompkins was named a First-Team All-SEC selection by the league’s coaches and Second Team by the media. The 6-foot-10 inch, 245 pound Thompson led the Bulldogs with 50 blocks last season, the most by a Georgia player in 15 years.

As a freshman in 2008-09, Thompkins was named to the SEC All-Freshman Team after a stellar high school career at Wesleyan High in Norcross, Georgia.

During his three-year collegiate career, Thompkins appeared in 89 total games and averaged 15.7 points, 7.8 rebounds, 1.4 assists and 1.3 blocks while shooting 46.9 percent from the field. During his junior season, Thompkins shot 31.1 percent from 3-point range, going 23-for-74.

Thompkins becomes the second Norcross, Georgia product on the Clippers roster, joining the Clippers 2010 first round draft pick Al-Farouq Aminu.

The Clippers selected another University of Georgia product with the 47th pick, adding the 6-foot-4 Leslie. A super athletic guard with explosive leaping ability, Leslie was named Second Team All-SEC following a successful junior season that saw him average 14.4 points, 7.2 rebounds and 2.9 assists per game. During the 2010-11 season, Leslie ranked second in the SEC in offensive rebounding average (3.2).

In his three-year career at Georgia (2008-11), Leslie averaged 12.2 points, 6.1 rebounds and 2.1 assists in 90 games.

Trey will be a good backup for Blake and De'Andre Travis Leslie could be the Shannon Brown of the Clippers once he gets that jumpshot going and improve his handle on the ball.

I still would have liked the Clips to get a big PG to play next to Eric Gordon.

Can't believe they traded away the #1 pick to get rid of Baron...

Leslie is an athletic freak that could run with this team. But he needs to develop more guard skills. A jump shot and some ball handling. He could see a lot of time in the D-league.
Thompkins could be a decent back up. A big guy that has a jump shot allowing more spacing. He could be a big flop or a decent back up. Better than Brian Cook on defense.
