Thomas exited the five-game Summer League stint posting the highest scoring average ever for a Summer League player playing more than two games (27.4 points). The guard, who averaged 4.2 assists as well, topped Damian Lillard’s record of 26.5 points
Last Summer League. Thomas, who averaged 27.0 points last Summer League in his Co-MVP effort. The 20-year-old, who posted 25+ points in all five Summer League contests, had his highest scoring performance in a loss to the Bucks with 31.
Thomas’ shooting splits 44/27/87 were similar to last season’s 43/36/84. His biggest improvement was in the assist column. After averaging 2.0 assists in 2021, he upped that number to 4.2 this year, with games of seven and five, both of which were better than any game he played in either college or the NBA.
