According to Basketball Reference, Thomas will be the 13th player to wear No. 3 in Los Angeles, joining Lakers luminaries Devean George, Shammond Williams, Trevor Ariza and Sedale Threatt.
Thomas landed in Los Angeles as the Cleveland Cavaliers cleaned house Feb. 8 before the NBA trade deadline expired. He's the second player who was part of those deals to swap uniform numbers shortly after switching teams.
Larry Nance Jr. originally wore No. 24 with the Cavs but changed to No. 22, which was the number his father had retired by the team.
