The Sixers signed 21-year-old swingman
Adonis Thomas to a 10-day contract, the team announced.
The contract of James
Nunnally, who had exhausted his share of 10-day deals, had expired Saturday
night, leaving the Sixers’ roster with a vacancy.
The 6-7, 240-pounder spent
most of his season with the D-League’s Springfield Armor. Sandwiched between
D-League stints was a four-game stint Thomas played in Orlando on a pair of
10-day deals, the last of which expired March 14. While with the Magic, Thomas
averaged 1.8 points, 0.8 rebounds and 0.5 assists.
Thomas went undrafted last
summer out of Memphis, where he played two seasons.
Friday’s game at Memphis
should feel like a homecoming for Thomas, who was born there. Thomas is the
Sixers’ fourth player with Memphis roots. Thaddeus Young, Elliot Williams and
Arnett Moultrie all went to high school in the Tennessee town.
Thomas will be the eighth
rookie and the 23rd player overall to have appeared in uniform this
season for the Sixers, and the 28th to occupy a spot on their 15-man
