At Ohio State, Deshaun Thomas was used to winning. He can continue to do so in the NBA.
Thomas was selected by the Western Conference champion San Antonio Spurs with the 58th overall pick in the draft. Because he was picked in the second round, Thomas' NBA contract is not guaranteed.
During the draft telecast on ESPN, analyst Jay Bilas said he thought Thomas would get picked at the beginning of the second round.
Thomas is known mostly as a pure shooter, but has some athletic limitations.
As a sophomore, Thomas averaged 19.8 points and 5.9 rebounds for the Buckeyes last season.
