HoopsHype Lance Thomas rumors

November 12, 2014 Updates

But the clock is running out. Anthony Morrow returned on Tuesday and will soon get more minutes. Andre Roberson and Perry Jones are days away. Kevin Durant is weeks away. So the Lance Thomas era is soon to come to an end. And he’s making sure to get up shots while he still can. Thomas has been mostly useful these past few weeks, chipping in with his defensive hustle and his around-the-rim energy. But on Tuesday, he was bad. Right from the tip, Thomas started firing up some ill-advised looks, tossing up far too many outside jumpers. At the end of the first quarter, he was 0-of-6 shooting with two turnovers. By the end of the night, he was 2-of-10. It’s already the fourth game this season he’s had double-digit shot attempts. Pretty soon, all those (and more) will be going to the MVP. Oklahoman

Williams correctly points out the club could not anticipate second-year power forward Darius Miller suffering a stress fracture in his left foot that required corrective surgery in September, sidelining him indefinitely, nor the toe chip fracture sustained by forward Ryan Anderson that still keeps him off the floor and could for several more weeks. Tuesday moves, he said, have been pondered for the last few weeks. "I don't make rash decisions," Williams said. "It's like everybody always thinks the worst all the time. It's seven games. There's no need for all that. We're going to try to tweak our roster as best we can to try to get better. That's the bottom line." New Orleans Times-Picayune

On off days, Thomas has continued to enjoy being a full-time New Orleans resident, including some of the perks that are specific to this area. “I love it here – the gym’s available 24 hours a day, and I love to fish,” Thomas said, smiling. “It’s a win-win for me. I get to work on my craft every day, then I get to relax on the water. In the past two years, I’ve probably only been home (to New York) for a total of maybe three or four weeks. “I love this city, the food and how nice people are. I’m happy to be re-signed.” NBA.com

Forward Lance Thomas also is hoping the Pelicans will extend him a contract offer. The Pelicans waived Thomas last Wednesday to clear salary cap space for the franchise to sign center Greg Stiemsma. If the Pelicans had not waived Thomas, he would have been guaranteed to earn $884,293 this upcoming season. New Orleans Times-Picayune
