Khyri Thomas

Khyri Thomas has 25 points in his past two NBA Summer League games with Detroit.


Khyri Thomas hit a 3-pointer on the Pistons' first possession of their NBA Summer League game Monday, and he drew praise from observers in his third game in Las Vegas.

The second-round pick out of Creighton finished with 12 points on 4-of-5 shooting and two assists in the Pistons' 105-97 victory.

That followed a 13-point performance in a loss to the Grizzlies on Saturday after a difficult debut Friday. Thomas is 5 for 10 from 3-point range in his three Summer League games.

Here is some reaction to the Omaha native's performance so far:

Thomas looked smooth, hitting a corner 3-pointer and a drive in the first quarter. Defensively, he also looked to be plugged in again, as he was in the first two games. He also had a nice pass, finding an open cutter to the rim for a dunk.

He plays with a smoothness that allows him to get into the teeth of a defense. He needs to improve finishing around the basket, but he’s effective getting to the rim. He also shot the ball well. ... Thomas has been the Pistons’ most consistent player.
