Walkup, Thomas  Stephen F. Austin 6'4" 195 PG SR. Thomas Walkup is a smart, rugged, competitor that improved each season in his college career. ...Walkup averaged 18.1 points, 6.9 rebounds and 4.5 assists per game as a Senior. He is a willing, and able defender. His defensive rating was significantly better than the Stephen F Austin team DEFRTG. ...Walkup has below average athleticism for the NBA. His other weakness is his three-point stroke. He hit just .305 of his career three-point attempts. His 2.64-to-1 assist-to-turnover ratio is excellent. Walkup improved his scoring, rebounding, assists, and free throw percentage with each season. He shot 81% FT in 2015-16. ...The two-time Southland Conference Player of the Year is probably the most underrated guy in the 2016 NBA Draft. Walkup is a strong guard that posted numbers too good to ignore. His BasslineSpin.com/Hoop Obsession EFR is .837. That doesn't happen by accident, regardless of how small your conference is. The Southland certainly fits the small-conference bill. ...Walkup had draft workouts with the Jazz, Celtics, Pelicans, and Rockets (as of 06/17/16). We think the 23 year-old is an NBA player.
