Remember Tyrus Thomas? The Blazers selected him with the 4th overall pick in the 2006 draft, then traded him along with the contract of Viktor Khyrapa to the Bulls for No. 2 pick LaMarcus Aldridge (seriously).
Thomas was raw talent, mainly known for being a fantasy tease and an athletic freak that dunked on people or got dunked on on a nightly basis for seven seasons.
