Current Team: Charlotte Bobcats
Thomas would be a formidable asset to the Wizards, who are still in a stage of rebuilding.
Why Thomas would be better playing for the Wizards than the Bobcats
Thomas, like Blatche, has not found the right team to play for and is willing to change teams. Not only does Thomas not fit in with the Bobcats, like Blatche with the Wizards, he is not getting the playing time he needs and is sitting on the bench. With only 21 minutes of playing time, Thomas managed to score 10.2 points, grab 5.5 rebounds and 1.6 blocks. When Thomas started to play more, 33.9 minutes, the amount Blatche averaged when playing on the Wizards, he improved his stats all around scoring 16.5 points, grabbing 8.8 rebounds, and 2.6 blocks. In this amount of playing time, Blatche only averaged 16.8 PPG, 8.2 RPG and 0.8 BPG. Not only are Thomas's all-around stats better, he is by far the superior defender, the better athlete and the better teammate to many of the players currently on the Wizards.
Why Blatche would make a better player for the Bobcats than the Wizards
While Thomas has better all-around stats and is a better defensive player, Blatche is by far the better player. After trading Gerald Wallace and Stephen Jackson, the Bobcats are in desperate need of an offensive player. Blatche could also lead and develop rookie Kemba Walker if moved to the Bobcats.
