Thomas, 29, posted 15.2 points, 4.8 assists and 2.7 rebounds per game in 32 appearances last season for the Cleveland Cavaliers and Los Angeles Lakers. The 5-foot-9 point guard scored a career-high 28.9 points per game during the 2016-17 season for the Boston Celtics, before being traded to the Cavaliers in August as part of the Kyrie Irving deal.
He was traded to the Lakers in February. The two-time All-Star is entering his eighth NBA season. The second round pick in the 2011 NBA Draft began his career with the Sacramento Kings. He also suited up for the Phoenix Suns, before joining the Celtics in a 2015 trade.
Several NBA players discussed Thomas' move Friday on social media.
