Bruce Pearl shares his thoughts on JT Thor's NBA Draft status
Many Auburn players have already made their NBA Draft or transfer decisions. Sharife Cooper is turning pro. Allen Flanigan and others are returning to school.
The one holdout at this point is JT Thor, who is still going through the pre-Draft process. There’s still plenty of time for him to get information to make the best decision for him.
But, on Tuesday, coach Bruce Pearl weighed in on Thor’s status, saying he’ll be a pro someday, adding that if he goes to the draft, he’ll surely be drafted:
Auburn HC Bruce Pearl on JT Thor, who is still in the NBA Draft process: “I think JT is going to be a great NBA player. He is going to be a pro. It’s up to them to decide when and how high and all that… If JT stays in the draft, he’s gonna get drafted.”

Thor played in 27 games for the Tigers this past season, starting all of them. He averaged 9.4 points, 5 rebounds and 1.4 blocks per game.
As mentioned earlier, Thor still has time to decide. But, it seems Pearl is planning for Thor to leave school and turn pro. We’ll see what happens!
