JT Thor showed the NBA what he’s capable of Friday night.

Thor made his NBA G League debut for the Greensboro Swarm last night and had quite the showing against another former Auburn Tiger.

He scored 34 points off of 14-22 shooting. He also added 12 rebounds.

Despite Thor’s great effort, the Swarm fell to the Birmingham Squadron 128-117. The Squadron were led by former Auburn guard Jared Harper’s 35 points.

Thor was drafted with the 37th overall pick in the second round of the 2021 NBA draft by the Charlotte Hornets. The former Tiger knew he would need to be developed to be an NBA player but he really showed out in his debut.
