Thomas Signs with Phoenix, Scores 20 in Debut

Tim Thomas wrote the final chapter of his season-long saga Friday afternoon when he signed for the rest of the year with the Suns, then went out and scored 20 points. Thomas' decision to go with Phoenix instead of New Jersey raised questions over whether Bulls GM John Paxson coerced him into going out west. Reports last weekend had Paxson offering Thomas all of what he was owed if he signed with a Western Conference club but only a buyout if he signed with a competing club in the East.
