2023 Fantasy Outlook
On the whole, it was another underwhelming season for Thomas, ending as the 351st-ranked player in nine-category leagues. In 16.6 minutes per night, he averaged 10.6 points, adding very little else. Herein lies the problem with Thomas. He has proven himself to be a competent scorer, delivering multiple 40-point games last season. The issue is that he offers basically nothing else when he is on the floor. This was highlighted by the fact that he was not even a part of the regular rotation to close last season, despite the team having parted ways with Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant. Thomas should be in the discussion for playing time again this season but will be battling the likes of Ben Simmons, Spencer Dinwiddie, Mikal Bridges and Dennis Smith for playing time. He is not worth drafting outside of deeper formats but is someone to monitor closely should he be able to diversify his game to the point where he forces the coaching staff to give him minutes.

Personal Bio/PreCareer Summary

Cameron Bouchea Thomas was born in October of 2001 in Yokosuka, Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan. He is the son of Leslie Thomas and has an older sister. For prep school, Thomas initially attended Oscar F. Smith High School in Chesapeake, Virginia. Prior to his junior season, he transferred to Oak Hill Academy in Mouth of Wilson, Virginia. At Oak Hill, he was teammates with Cole Anthony and Kofi Cockburn. As a senior at Oak Hill, Thomas scored 31.5 points per game and was selected to play in the Jordan Brand Classic. In November of 2019, Thomas committed to playing ball at Louisiana State University. The combo guard played one season at LSU and as a freshman was named to the First Team All-SEC squad. Thomas then declared for the 2021 NBA Draft. The Brooklyn Nets selected Thomas with the 27th overall pick.

Scores team-high 18 in finale
GBrooklyn Nets
April 14, 2024
Thomas supplied 18 points (5-12 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 5-6 FT), three rebounds and two assists over 27 minutes during Sunday's 107-86 loss to the 76ers.
ANALYSIS
Thomas leading the team in scoring despite a 21-point defeat is emblematic of Brooklyn's 2023-24 campaign. While Thomas' 55.4 true-shooting percentage isn't exactly worthy of being an offensive engine, his tough-shot making and ability to get buckets versus all types of defenders has solidified him as a top isolation scorer of the next generation. Thomas ascended to career-high marks of 5.0 free-throw attempts and 6.0 three-point attempts per game this season, creating true multi-level productivity to help balance his scoring diet.

Latest Fantasy Rumors
Might lose starting job
GBrooklyn Nets
December 27, 2023
Thomas could return to the bench soon, Brian Lewis of the New York Post reports.
ANALYSIS
The third-year guard replaced Dorian Finney-Smith in the starting lineup at the beginning of December, and while Thomas has averaged 21.1 points a game since the switch, Brooklyn's defense has suffered. "I said I'll continue to gather the data and the data would speak for itself," coach Jacque Vaughn said Tuesday. "I'm more analytically based than I ever have been in my career. So you take this group that's started recently, the numbers haven't been efficient or sufficient enough for us, so there probably will be a change at some point." Finney-Smith is out of the lineup Wednesday due to a sore left knee, but once he's ready to return, he could step back into the starting five and bump Thomas back to the second unit.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2022
2021
It's all about opportunity for Thomas, who, despite a few flashes during his rookie season, finished well outside the top 300 per game in eight-category roto leagues. When handed a significant role, Thomas flaunted his offensive ability, scoring at least 20 points in six of eight games during a stretch in February. He ended his first season in the league with averages of 8.5 points and 2.4 rebounds. Based on what we have seen, Thomas would need Kevin Durant and/or Kyrie Irving to be traded to have a shot at consistent fantasy value. While this could certainly happen at some point in the near future, as of right now, he is not on the radar for anyone preparing for an early fantasy draft.
Thomas was selected by the Nets with the 27th overall pick in the 2021 NBA Draft. Thomas was a high-volume scorer for LSU as a freshman, averaging 23.0 points per game in addition to 3.4 rebounds and 1.5 assists. He's expected to be a pure scorer at the NBA level, as he doesn't excel anywhere else. Notably, he was named co-MVP of the 2021 Summer League. He averaged 27.0 points on 42/36/85 shooting splits. While he recorded nearly twice as many turnovers (3.8) as assists (2.0), he made up for it with his scoring. With the Nets this season, Thomas figures to compete with Patty Mills and Jevon Carter for reserve minutes in the backcourt.
