    Forward Malcolm Thomas opted to forgo the chance to play basketball in China when 76ers coach Brett Brown gave him the opportunity to play decent minutes with Philadelphia, according to The Philadelphia Inquirer. "It's a great feeling. It's a really great feeling," Thomas said. "I feel like I've been working on it this whole time. It just never happened. And now that it's here I want to take full advantage." Thomas played for Chicago in the summer league, but he was not invited to an NBA training camp. He averaged 15.2 points and 9.4 rebounds in 10 games in the NBA Development League last season. "He's got a chance. Really his first chance, in my opinion, to look at minutes and a role," Brown said. "It's still highly competitive, but he sees that a bunch of young guys that he's competing with. And he probably sees a lot more daylight than he would've seen with Utah or the Spurs or Chicago."
