The Lakers are signing Thomas to a 10-day contract under the hardship exemption. Thomas has bounced around the league a ton since being traded from the Boston Celtics. Adding Thomas can be a huge help for the Lakers if he can stay healthy and productively produce. It will provide much needed depth and shooting. The 5-foot-9, 32-year-old guard went off for 42 points, eight assists, six rebounds and five 3-pointers in the Gold’s 131-127 loss to the Fort Wayne Mad Ants.
