The Los Angeles Clippers have bought the 48th pick in the 2017 NBA Draft from the Milwaukee Bucks, selecting Sindarius Thornwell. Thornwell is a 6’5” shooting guard who was the superstar for South Carolina during their tournament run last season. He averaged 21.4 points, 7.1 rebounds, 2.8 assists, 2.1 steals, and 1.0 blocks per game, playing every position from shooting guard to power forward. Thornwell shot 47.1% from the field and 39.2% from deep, but will turn 23 years old before opening night.
