Sindarius Thornwell Signs With German Team

Veteran free agent guard Sindarius Thornwell will resume his career overseas, having signed with Ratiopharm Ulm, the German team announced today in a press release. Thornwell is an injury replacement for Christoph Philipps, who hurt his shoulder.

A second-round pick in the 2017 draft, Thornwell has appeared in 160 total regular season games since entering the NBA, spending time with the Clippers, Pelicans, and Magic from 2017-21. He played in 21 games last season for New Orleans and Orlando.

Thornwell is considered a strong perimeter defender, but his offensive output in the NBA has been modest. The 6’4″ guard, who turns 27 next Monday, averaged 2.5 PPG on 40.7% shooting in his 160 NBA contests (10.8 MPG).

Thornwell finished last season on a two-way deal with the Magic, but had been a free agent since then. In Germany, he’ll join a Ratiopharm Ulm roster that includes a handful of other former NBA players, including Cristiano Felicio, Jaron Blossomgame, and Semaj Christon. The club competes in both Germany’s top league and the EuroCup.
