Thompson's dad says son is a first-rounder

McClatchy news servicesApril 8, 2011 

Former NBA player Mychal Thompson, father of Washington State forward Klay Thompson, said his talks with NBA officials have convinced him that his son will go in the first round of the NBA draft if he chooses to pass up his senior season in college.

“He’s a first-rounder,” Mychal Thompson said on Thursday. “If he’s not, there’s something wrong.”

The elder Thompson said his son wants to make a decision as soon as possible “to be fair to Washington State and (coach) Ken Bone.”
