Thomas averaged 22.3 points over four NCAA tournament games this past season and was named to the NCAA West Region all-tournament team. “It’s a good program,” Thomas said of the Wizards. “Got a lot of young guys. They play real hard. I can contribute a lot. I can be that guy who comes off the bench and score for them, be that energy guy, do whatever it takes to help my team win and be that guy who’s willing to work at it.” While Thomas had been a featured player for several season at Ohio State, Southerland did not receive significant minutes until he was a senior.

Voices: Skipping voluntary workouts?

“It wouldn’t be like our guys to leave that. So I asked him if he forgot to get his stuff washed. He said, ‘Oh no buddy, that was last night. I came in around 11.’ “We had a key made for him. He would do double workouts, even after games.” Here’s another anecdote, from Dallas Magazine : A few days before the first game, he landed in Dallas and shirked the team’s offers to find him an upscale apartment near downtown Dallas. Instead, Jagr rented a room at an extended-stay hotel for $169-a-night.
