Bobcats make Thomas a RFA with offer
Friday's move will allow the Bobcats to match any offer Thomas gets from another team when free agency begins next week. Thomas said on Tuesday he wants to sign a long-term deal with the Bobcats.
Thomas averaged 10.1 points and 6.1 rebounds in 25 games with Charlotte. He closed the season with 21 points and nine rebounds in a playoff loss to Orlando.
