I would love to see Thomas finish it out, but will be very surprised if he does. I'm not sure that he can raise his stock any higher, because I think he is what he is at this stage. They have an offensive minded forward coming in (Loving) and with the others' improvement, as you said, they have a good foundation that should allow them to stay in the top half of the league with or without Thomas. I hope he comes back as a fan, but also understand that is improbable.
