Malcolm Thomas Reaches Agreement With Maccabi Tel Aviv

After hammering out the details over the past several days, free agent Malcolm Thomas has finally reached agreement on a contract with Maccabi Tel Aviv, league sources told RealGM on Monday night.

While reports surfaced late last week that Thomas-to-Maccabi was imminent, the 6-foot-9 forward was still sorting through his options while negotiating logistics with the EuroLeague powerhouse, sources said.

Although Thomas had a superb Summer League showing with the Chicago Bulls in July – along with impressive workouts for the New York Knicks and Miami Heat over the last few weeks – in the end he simply could not capture the guaranteed NBA contract he was seeeking. The Bulls, Heat and Knicks were among the teams that offered him non-guaranteed training camp deals.

Privately, Thomas and his camp are hopeful he’ll land an NBA deal next offseason and confident that the chance to excel for an upper-echelon EuroLeague team will allow him to further intrigue American teams, as Jeremy Pargo was able to do.
