October 28, 2014 Updates

Malcolm Thomas was set to leave on Tuesday to play basketball in China. The 25-year-old had an offer to play in the country’s professional league, which begins next month. Then he received a phone call on Saturday morning from Brett Brown. The Sixers head coach told Thomas that there was a chance to play decent minutes on his young team. Thomas has played parts of three NBA seasons as a deep reserve. This, he said, was a chance he could not pass on. Philadelphia Inquirer

Instead of China, Thomas will fly Tuesday with the Sixers to Indianapolis in advance of Wednesday’s season-opener against the Pacers. Thomas arrived in Philadelphia on Sunday and signed with the team before Monday’s practice. “It’s a great feeling. It’s a really great feeling,” said Thomas. “I feel like I’ve been working on it this whole time. It just never happened. And now that it’s here I want to take full advantage.” Philadelphia Inquirer
