Warriors' Klay Thompson on Buddy Hield: "He's Next Big Thing"

Klay Thompson is no NBA general manager, but he doesn’t shy away from assessing college talent – particularly that of Oklahoma guard Buddy Hield.

Thompson is a huge fan of Hield, the Oklahoma guard who is lighting up the NCAA Tournament while leading the Sooners into the Final Four this weekend in Houston.

“He’ll be a great scorer,” Thompson told CSNBayArea.com on Monday. “He works so hard. He’ll be a tenacious defender. He’s physically gifted. He’s going to help somebody. He’s going to make a big impact.

“Whatever team drafts him in the Top 10, well, personally, for me, I think he’s top-three, at least a top-five pick,” Thompson added. “But if he slips into that six to 10 range, some team is going to get really lucky.” (Comcast SportsNet)
