The Mavericks have re-signed 33-year old forward Tim Thomas to a 1-year deal. Thomas played in 18 games (1 start) last season for the Mavericks and he averaged 15.8 minutes, 7.5 points, 2.3 rebounds and 0.8 assists per game. He has now played in 824 games (408 starts) in his NBA career and he has averaged 25.9 minutes, 11.5 points, 4.1 rebounds and 1.5 assists per game. Thomas missed most of last season as he was taking care of his sick wife. Look for him to give the Mavericks what they thought they were going to get out of him last year in 2010-11.
UPDATE: (9/15/2010) – Tim Thomas has decided not to play for the Mavericks this season. The team and the league are working together to void his contract. Thomas wants to tend to his ailing wife instead of playing basketball which is the honorable thing to do.
