The Nuggets got him for a veteran minimum. Taking on mind all the opinions of the specialist that follow the day by day of the Colorado franchise, they would be foolish to pass on him. He was an All NBA Second Team player and nearly averaging 30 points per game a couple of seasons ago.
The second unit could be in the perfect hands in a team that is improving during the last years and last season was so close of the postseason.
Thomas will most likely be a great weapon coming off the bench. Per basketball reference, he averaged 15.6 points per game last season coming off the bench for the Lakers. These are still decent scoring numbers, even if it is a down year after his 28.9 points per game season.
What is also being massively overlooked is Michael Malone coached him for a bit in Sacramento.
