Scottie reminds me of Lonzo Ball - Tim Cone
Scottie Thompson played 28 minutes tonight and scored 4 points but his coach is still all praises for his young guard.
Scottie didn't have to score against Kia as his teammates are all pouring in with the scoring but it doesn't mean that he is not capable. Scottie is the type of player who usually fills in the stat sheet from points to rebound to assists. Against Kia, he was not able to contribute with scoring and with his usual rebounding numbers but he led everyone in assists at 10.
It's a perfect 10 compliment as Scottie was praised by Coach Tim Cone after winning the game against Kia with the score of 120 -99.
Scottie is a guy that is looking to pass, he is infectious, once he starts passing other stars as well. - Tim cone
Scottie reminded Tim Cone so much of an up and coming NBA player that he watched during the summer league by the name of Lonzo Ball.
Lonzo Ball reminds me of Scottie Thompson, willing to pass and fun to watch. Both are big in their position.
Tim Cone pointed out the similarity but also quick to share the difference in shooting and form. He also noted that Scottie still needs to be more consistent in his shooting.
He also mentioned that both Scottie Thompson and Lonzo Ball are special players. Tim Cone was really happy about the similarity and was also happy that unlike Lonzo Ball, Scottie doesn't have a loudmouthed father and was really thankful for it.
