Timberwolves To Bring John Thomas, 35, To Training Camp

Since David Kahn took over as GM, the Timberwolves have been anything but conventional with their personnel signings. That trend will continue into training camp, as Wolves beat writer Jerry Zgoda of the Star Tribune reports they will bring 35-year-old John Thomas, who hasn’t played at the NBA level since the 2005/06 season, to camp:

#Timberwolves will bring former Gopher C John Thomas — now 35 — to training camp so they have another big body who can bang in Mankato.less than a minute ago via web


Thomas played for the Timberwolves during the 2004/05 season, averaging 2.5 points and 2.4 rebounds in 44 appearances. Zgoda makes it sound as though he’s not there to actually make the team, but rather to serve as an extra body in practice. There are certainly worse ways Thomas could try to earn a few bucks in the fall.
