Malcolm Thomas Close To Deal, Bulls Ruled Out As Option
Malcolm Thomas is on the verge of signing a contract with either an NBA or overseas club, agent Aaron Mintz told RealGM on Tuesday.
“He’s close to a deal right now,” Mintz said. “There are a few different options.”
Thomas was named to the Vegas Summer League All-Star team last month as a member of the Chicago Bulls, averaging 11.4 points and 12.4 rebounds over five games. Thomas, who played collegiately at San Diego State, showed that he could provide a high motor and sharp instincts offensively.
It is believed that Thomas will ultimately come to an agreement with a team overseas.
The Bulls expressed interest in Thomas, but they are no longer in play. The Chicago bench underwent a massive overhaul over the offseason, but they have long been in the market to add a fifth big man.
Thomas played three regular season games for the San Antonio Spurs last season.
