The Phoenix Suns officially announced the acquisition of Thomas on Saturday in a sign-and-trade deal with the Sacramento Kings.
The deal had been reported by multiple outlets on Friday. The Suns envision Thomas as a complement to their double point guard starting lineup of Goran Dragic and Eric Bledsoe. The 5-foot-9 Thomas averaged 20.3 points and 6.3 assists for the Kings last season, his third in the NBA, and was a restricted free agent. He was one of six players to average at least 20 points and six assists in 2013-14.
