Sixers sign Adonis Thomas

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 roster.
