Sixers sign Adonis Thomas to 10-day deal
Share This Post

The Sixers continue to give tryouts all the way up to the end.

On Monday the team announced it had signed 6-foot-7 swingman Adonis Thomas to a 10-day contract from the Springfield Armor of the D-League. Thomas takes the roster spot formerly held by James Nunnally, whose 10-day contract expired on Saturday.

This is Thomas' second stint in the NBA this season. Previously he appeared in four games with the Orlando Magic on a 10-day deal, where he scored seven points, including three points against the Sixers on March 2. In 34 games with Springfield, Thomas averaged 16.6 points and 4.3 rebounds per game. He shot 46.6 percent (55 for 118) from three-point range.

Thomas, 21, spent two years in college at Memphis and was not selected in the 2013 NBA Draft. Incidentally, Thomas will be with the team for the final five games of the season, including when it travels to take on Memphis on Saturday night. Like Arnett Moultrie, Elliott Williams and Thad Young, Thomas is a Memphis native.

Thomas will be the 23rd different player to suit up for the Sixers this season. That's the most since 1995-96 when 24 different players suited up for the Sixers.
