On March 2, according to reports, the Hornets signed Thomas to a short 10-day contract! Congratulations to Little Assassin for returning to the NBA again! Thomas has played for the Lakers and the Mavericks this season. Hope to stay in the league successfully this time.
The Hornets signed Thomas, looking at the latter’s performance in the G League. Thomas is currently playing for the Nuggets’ G-League team, the Big Rapids Nuggets. In the previous 3 games, Toss scored 45 points, 3 rebounds and 5 assists, 33 points and 7 assists, and 46 points, 5 rebounds and 7 assists respectively! He scored 124 points in the three battles, averaging 41.3 points per game and shooting 52%, which also made him the best player of the week in the Development League!
This news is actually very happy for the fans, but everyone is also worried that Thomas will not be able to successfully stay in the NBA after this short-term contract. After all, this league is so cruel. It can be said that Thomas’s first two return to the league were not smooth. He signed a 10-day short contract with the Lakers and only played 4 games. Later, he signed a 10-day short contract with the Mavericks because he only played 1 game because of the triggering of the new crown agreement. In addition, he only played 3 games when he signed with the Pelicans last season.
Netizens said that Thomas is the type who can rule at will when he is out of the league, but not once he enters the league. His height limits his upper limit! Thomas has played in 5 games in the NBA this season, averaging 8.6 points, 1.6 rebounds and 2.0 assists per game, shooting 31.9% from the field and only 20% from three-pointers.
Judging from the on-court performance of the G League, Thomas is definitely a dominant player. In addition to his good touch on the outside, the leader is more pleased that Thomas’ physical fitness and state are still very good. To break through against layups, I believe that even in the NBA, as long as there is a stable time, the little assassins are equally capable of showing themselves.
In addition to scoring, don’t forget Thomas’s playmaking, assists and coping abilities, knowing that he does this himself. All kinds of exciting and wonderful passes on the field are overwhelmed.
After coming to the Hornets, Thomas finally succeeded as teammates with Hayward, although Eunuch Hai is still unable to play due to injury. In 2017, Thomas recruited Hayward for the Celtics. When Hayward joined, Thomas tweeted that he was looking forward to playing with him! But unfortunately, Thomas was traded to the Cavaliers for Irving soon after.
The Hornets are currently ranked 10th in the Eastern Conference with 30 wins and 33 losses. If Thomas can bring the state of the G League to the team, I believe the Hornets are willing to give him a chance to stay in the team, and then he can play in the playoffs again.
It can only be said that everything is possible. Everyone knows that the younger brother Stephenson and Thomas were on the same G League team. Now the younger brother has established a firm foothold and signed with the Pacers until the end of the season. He has once again proved that he can. Based in the NBA, he also made a key three-pointer a few days ago to help the team drag into overtime.
33-year-old Thomas has always insisted on never giving up. So far in his career, Thomas has played a total of 533 games, starting 362 games, averaging 18 points, 2.4 rebounds and 4.9 assists in 28.8 minutes per game; played 25 games in the playoffs, averaging 22.6 points, 3.1 rebounds and 6.3 assists per game.
Thomas once again explained to the fans the spirit of endless dreams and endless struggle! Facts tell us that it is still useful to work hard in the face of absolute talent, and opportunities are always reserved for those who are prepared! Finally, I wish Thomas all the best and look forward to his performance in the Hornets!
