2006: Selected by Portland in 1st round (4th overall) of the NBA Draft; Traded to Chicago in a four-player deal, June 28th...2007: NBA All-Rookie Second Team...2010: Traded to Charlotte in a four-player deal, Feb. 18th; Re-signed with Charlotte to a five-year deal worth $40 million, July 12th...2013: Released by Charlotte, July 10th.

Named SEC Freshman of the year following a 2005-06 campaign in which he took the Tigers by storm by averaging 12.3 points per game and placing second in the conference in rebounding with 9.2 boards per outing...Thomas was also recognized as the NCAA Atlanta Region MVP in the NCAA Tournament after combining for 30 points against the likes of Duke and Texas...All SEC Freshman Team and SEC Co-Defensive Player of the Year according to league coaches...Has great touch from 12-15 feet on his jump shot and moves well in the paint, always ready to produce a memorable dunk or dynamic move that announces he has arrived on the scene...Thomas has great lengthy strides and covers the floor well on defense, making him seem bigger than 6-9...Has a lot of upside and potential but still must learn the nuances of the game before being a heavy contributor at the pro level...A lottery lock, Thomas will certainly be picked extremely early on in the draft due to his superior athleticism and huge upside.
