Former Bulldog signs with Houston Rockets

Brodric Thomas, former Truman State University men’s basketball player, signed with the Houston Rockets of the National Basketball Association.

Thomas signed on with the team as an unrestricted free agent after going undrafted in last night’s NBA draft.  

“Time to take off,” Thomas wrote in a tweet. “Blessed and ready to work!”

As a Bulldog, Thomas set a University record with 666 points in a single season. He also ended his career as a four-time GLVC Player of the Week and fifth in Truman history for scoring an average of 21.5 points per game. 

Thomas was the only Div. II player selected as a Professional Basketball Combine honoree this year. According to the PBC’s website, each player who attends is able to participate in private workouts and scrimmages, do combine testing, and interview with NBA general managers, NBA scouts, G league coaches and overseas personnel.
