The Charlotte Hornets have been making moves all night. Even having this pick is the result of the first one, where they took Miles Plumlee off the hands of the Pistons in exchange for a 20 spot jump up the draft order.

With the 37th pick in the draft, the Hornets took JT Thor, forward out of Auburn.

Thor is one of the draft’s youngest prospects—he doesn’t turn 19 until next month. He has great size and length and shows glimpses of a burgeoning all around skill set. He has a good looking lefty stroke from deep and put up good stock numbers defensively. The Hornets have proven to have a very good player development program, and Thor has the tools to make a lot of progress in that program. He’s not unlike the Hornets previous pick Kai Jones in that regard.

Plus his name is Thor. There are all sorts of things that can be done with that.
