He was rewarded today by becoming the D-Fenders’ first GATORADE call-up of the season, and fifth overall, signing a contract with the San Antonio Spurs.

This is the fifth time Thomas has been called up in his D-Fenders career and his second time being called up by the Spurs. He previously spent time with the team during the 2011-12 season. Last year he spent time with both the Golden State Warriors and the Chicago Bulls.
