REPORT: Isaiah Thomas Signs 10-Day Deal With the Hornets

The Charlotte Hornets signed Isaiah Thomas to a 10-day contract on Tuesday, according to League insider Adrian Wojnarowski.

In the last week, the two-time All-Star guard averaged 41.3 points per game in three appearances with the G League franchise Grand Rapid Gold. Thomas scored a season-high record 46 points on Feb. 26, the most scored in the G League this year.

IT4’s signing couldn’t have come at a better for the Hornets (30-32), who have lost 11 of their last 13 games. The skid has dropped the franchise to ninth in the Eastern Conference playoff race.

Thomas played four games for the Lakers, memorably scoring 19 points against the Dallas Mavericks. The December game was his first time playing back an NBA court since he played for the Pelicans in 2020-2021. Thomas played one game for the Mavericks as well before his 10-day expired.
