Junior guard Isaiah Thomas was a streaky and volume shooter at Washington. He never shot better than 34.9 percent on three-pointers in a season, but he had a great day when he worked out at the NBA Draft combine.
Results from the workout were released to the media and Thomas shot the ball extremely well from the perimeter.
BYU’s Jimmer Fredette and College of Charleston’s Andrew Goudelock also performed well while Washington State’s Klay Thompson struggled from the perimeter.
The Bleacher Report tabbed Washington senior Matthew Bryan-Amaning as one of three likely second-round picks who could help a team immediately.
Here’s a look at Thomas’ interview (below) from the combine.

— Jamelle McMillan, the former O’Dea High star and Arizona State player, was named coordinator of basketball operations at Drake. Wouldn’t be surprised if McMillan is coaching an expansion NBA team in Seattle in 10 years.
