NBA Role: utility forward • NYK Depth Chart: Rotation

A utility forward outta Duke, Lance Thomas is looking to continue his recent, impressive stretch in the Big Apple; the past couple years, Thomas has emerged as a hustle guy w/ skill – shot 40% from downtown in 2015-16 – he’s the closest thing to a stopper they’ve seen since Jared Jeffries*; safety net – plays sticky defense and works hard despite a limited role; very high motor – embraces his role as ‘energy guy’; extending his range has given Lance new life – Jeff Hornacek can slot Thomas in most lineups since his shot has caught up to his activity; hidden gem around the league
