But it’s now becoming clear that Thomas is giving the team a huge boost and is helping them once again have real potential as the postseason quickly approaches.

As pointed out by Statmuse, the team is 6-1 with Thomas on their side.
Not surprisingly, the Hornets have decided to double-down on Thomas and have now signed him for the rest of the season.
The Buzz With IT
Thomas has just concluded a 10-day contract with the Hornets and, during that time, he’s done some great work.
Over the last five games, Thomas has averaged 10.8 points and 1.8 assists a game.
While that’s a far cry from the number of points he made in his prime or during his time in the G League, it’s still a huge help for Charlotte, who were struggling before Thomas came on board.
The team has been on the verge of greatness for a couple of seasons now, especially with the young phenom LaMelo Ball leading the way.
They’re still a few years away from making the Finals but they could definitely make some noise in the playoffs.
The team obviously sees Thomas as part of their immediate future.
Leadership is a very important aspect of what he brings to the team.
He has played for a number of teams, including the Los Angeles Lakers, Dallas Mavericks, Boston Celtics, Washington Wizards, and more.
He’s always been a hard-working, determined, relentless player who seems to never lose an ounce of fight in him.
That’s something the Hornets will need moving forward.
