Complete Breakdown of 76ers New Signee Malcolm Thomas

3 of 5


Below will be a shot chart from Thomas’ time in the D-League last year.

As you can see, Thomas has RANGE. Not only is he an absolute monster in the paint, he can also stretch out and his some three’s also. In his 39 D-League games, Thomas is shooting 43 percent from trey-ball land. Looking at his stats, he didn’t start shooting three’s until this season (2013-14) with the Austin Toros and Los Angeles D-Fenders. Thomas literally didn’t have a three-point percentage logged in the D-League until this season.

Looking back on his last game action, he was extremely impressive with the D-Fenders. Here is a video of Thomas scoring 31 points and knocking down six threes in a game.

Something I really like about Thomas is that he’s a big that can stretch the floor, but he’s not afraid to bang in the paint also. But, the form on his jumper looks really clean. It’s a fluid motion, his feet are set and straight and he has a nice follow through. The shot can tend to lack backspin, but it’s consistent and not broken.

The man can also finish in transition, look below!

If you didn’t know, that’s newly-acquired 76ers guard Marquis Teague passing the rock to newly-acquired 76ers forward Malcolm Thomas. THIS IS WHY HINKIE BROUGHT THEM BOTH TO PHILADELPHIA.

The court vision, the court vision! Look at Thomas whip this pass into the paint and get his man an easy bucket. Come on, that’s too easy at 6’9″.
