Malcolm Thomas is showing improved range on his jumper through three games in the D-League this season. Thomas has made 13 of 20 three-point attempts and is averaging 30 points, 12.7 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 2.5 blocks per game.

Thomas was signed by the San Antonio Spurs early this month.

“The early indications are that he’s expanded his skill set and was really shooting the three-ball well,” R.C. Buford said. “That has always been a valuable commodity in our system.”

Thomas has a shot at redefining the stretch-four position for the Spurs if he continues this development.
