The Celtics have gone external with their second two-way contract slot, signing guard Brodric Thomas one week after his release from the Cavaliers.

The 6-foot-5 Thomas is coming off a 2020-21 season that included 32 appearances between the Rockets and Cavs, with 125 points, 15 steals, 10 blocks, 30 assists, and 53 rebounds in 399 minutes played between the two franchises.

The former Truman State standout also posted a 36.1 percent field goal percentage (39-for-108), and knocked down 16 of his 59 three-point attempts (27.1 percent) over that NBA sample.

But Thomas did the bulk of his damage in the G League last year, with Second Team All-NBA G League and G-League All-Rookie Team honors with 18.5 points on 44.7 percent shooting (41.3 percent from deep), 7.3 rebounds, 3.5 assists, and 1.9 steals per game in 14 games (13 starts) between Rio Grande Valley and Canton.

The 24-year-old Thomas will join rookie Sam Hauser as the team’s two-way players in 2021-22. The roles had previously been filled by Tacko Fall and Tremont Waters.
