Searching for more than just an invite to NBA training camp, Los Angeles D-Fenders forward Malcolm Thomas has been working out for teams in hopes of securing a guaranteed deal. Though he still remains humble, perhaps the big man has the skill and proven talent to back up his bold asking price. Thomas was named to All-NBA D-League First Team this past season, after averaging 13.5 points, 9.1 rebounds, and 2.3 blocks per contest. He ended up donning three D-League team uniforms when the campaign was all said and done, but concluded the season on a high-note as he led the D-Fenders all the way to The Finals. Averaging a double-double off the bench in the postseason, Thomas averaged 17.9 points and 12.3 rebounds per game. As he looks to achieve that NBA dream, Thomas participated in a two-day workout with the New York Knicks last week. According to RealGM, New York executives liked what they saw but no formal offer has been made as of yet.
Forget a Camp Invite, Malcolm Thomas Looking for Guaranteed NBA Deal? - Ridiculous Upside
Thomas has been one of the few 10-day contract players to be waived by the Spurs that I liked. I hope he lands with someone if not the Spurs, someday.
When I googled him last week, there was interest in Chicago with the Bulls.
Is he the kid that went to San Diego State with Kawhi? If I remember correctly he didn't have much if any offensive game.
At this stage of the game I don't think there are that many open spots for 'guaranteed' contracts especially for guys who haven't really shown they can play or contribute on a night in, night out basis.
