2:52pm: The Warriors have officially signed Thomas to a 10-day contract, the team announced today in a press release.
9:46am: Despite a Monday report indicating that the Warriors weren't planning to fill their open roster spots in the near future, the club is expected to sign Malcolm Thomas to a 10-day contract, reports ESPN.com's Marc Stein (via Twitter).
Thomas, 24, made his NBA debut last season with the Spurs, appearing in three games with the team before being released. After a standout summer league performance with the Bulls last July, Thomas signed a contract with Israel's Maccabi Tel Aviv, but received limited playing time overseas, averaging just 15.6 minutes per game in 15 contests. The 6'9" forward made his 2012/13 D-League debut on Wednesday, posting 13 points and 17 rebounds for the Los Angeles D-Fenders.
Because the Warriors had a pair of open roster spots, after having traded Charles Jenkins and Jeremy Tyler at the deadline, they won't need to waive anyone to clear a spot for Thomas. A 10-day deal also won't add significantly to Golden State's team salary, as the team looks to remain below the tax line.
