The Hawks have officially acquired and waived Khyri Thomas.
Thomas was included in the Dewayne Dedmon trade but the Hawks never had intentions of keeping him. A former second-round pick, Thomas missed a big chunk of last season due to right foot surgery. He's played very little at the NBA level through two seasons and will try to crack an opening night roster somewhere else.

The Hawks will waive Khyri Thomas per Sarah K. Spencer.
Thomas was sent to Atlanta along with Tony Snell in exchange for Dewayne Dedmon, who is headed to the Pistons. The Hawks' reasoning for making the deal was to get off of the last two years of Dedmon's $26M contract. Snell, who is on the last year of his deal, appears to be staying put for now.

Dewayne Dedmon has been traded to the Pistons for Khyri Thomas and Tony Snell.
This makes sense as the Hawks drafted rather unusually regarding fit, picking up another frontcourt player despite their depth. Dedmon is a fantasy goldmine when given minutes and this situation could prove fruitful for him. The Hawks move Dedmon because he has two years and $26M left on his contract while Tony Snell's salary matches and is expiring. The Pistons will add a proven and productive big man on their roster while the Hawks can get an expiring deal and potentially trade further or sign John Collins to that big extension he wants.

Khyri Thomas benefited from the Pistons’ group workouts during the last three weeks, giving the team an opportunity to showcase his game.
“I thought Khyri Thomas had a great week,” Casey said. “He shot the ball extremely well and I was happy that finally the young man is healthy, really proud of the way Khyri came out and played.” The timing could absolutely work in his favor since his contract is only partially guaranteed next season. The biggest key for Thomas though is staying healthy, since he had injury woes since his NBA career began. The Pistons are desperate for more shooting and if the young man makes it past training camp he could be an interesting deep-league option for a franchise that is putting an emphasis on the growth of their players.

Khyri Thomas was able to play in eight games for the Pistons after missing three months with right foot surgery.
Thomas went under the knife on November 13, 2019 and returned with a G League outing on February 22, 2020. He was able to crack the rotation right before the NBA stopped but only saw more than 10 minutes of run in three games. The former second-round selection should get a fair shake at earning a full-time spot next year given Detroit's impending rebuild.

Khyri Thomas (right foot surgery) is available for the Pistons on Tuesday.
Thomas has been out a long time and will likely see just a few minutes. He's not on any fantasy radars right now.

Khyri Thomas (right foot surgery) is listed as probable for Tuesday's game vs. the Nuggets.
After some time in the G League, Thomas is listed as probable for Tuesday's matchup. The Pistons are playing most of their young players big minutes right now, so there's an outside chance that Thomas makes a splash down the stretch.

Khyri Thomas (foot surgery) returned to action on Friday after missing a little over two months.
Thomas played 22 minutes for the Pistons' G League affiliate, posting 27 points on 10-of-26 shooting with seven triples, seven rebounds, one assist and no turnovers. He should be back with main team soon but the 2018 second round pick can be ignored in fantasy circles.

Khyri Thomas underwent foot surgery and will be re-evaluated in six weeks.
Thomas can begin rehab right away, but he will likely be out for two months or more. Even when healthy, Thomas has not been fantasy relevant.

Khyri Thomas made his season debut vs. the Wizards on Monday, though he put up no stats in his two minutes.
Thomas made it only the floor in garbage time of a loss to Washington while many regular Pistons guards were sitting out with injuries. He's safe to ignore in all fantasy leagues.
November 2, 2019, 1:47 pmDerrick RosePG, Detroit Pistons
Derrick Rose (right hamstring tightness) is listed as questionable ahead of Saturday's game against the Nets.
Rose was dealing with the injury prior to Friday's game but ended up playing to the tune of 23 points, seven assists and three steals. Saturday is the second game of a back-to-back so he may be given the day off but with Reggie Jackson out and Tim Frazier also listed as questionable, maybe Rose can give them some minutes. Langston Galloway and Bruce Brown might be looking at expanded roles in this one.

Per Adrian Wojnarowski, the Pistons are waiving Joe Johnson, finalizing their roster for the 2019-2020 season.
Johnson had joined the Pistons preseason roster on a non-guaranteed deal. This deal makes sense as the Pistons decided to use their last roster spots for Christian Wood guard Khryi Thomas. This was a short-lived return to the NBA for Johnson, and chances are we won't see him again.

According to Keith Smith, a handful of teams who need help at point guard have reached out to the Pistons about acquiring Khyri Thomas.
The Pistons are considering trading the young lead guard rather than having his contract take up space on their books for the next two years. He'd be better off in place with less point guard depth than the Pistons but it's unlikely he holds much fantasy value regardless.

According to James L. Edwards III, the Pistons may give Svi Mykhailiuk "wing minutes in the second unit."
Mykhailiuk will be competing in camp with Khyri Thomas and Langston Galloway, among others. Mykhailiuk only played 10 minutes per game last season but has some offensive upside.

Khyri Thomas put up 26 points, six rebounds, two steals and seven 3-pointers in Friday's 96-80 win over Croatia at Summer League.
Thomas hit 9-of-20 from the field and 7-of-14 from the field. The Pistons landed Thomas with the 38th pick in the 2018 draft, and though he only appeared in 26 games for Detroit last season they like his long-term 3-and-D potential. Thomas may be able to crack the rotation this season, and dynasty owners should keep an eye on the lengthy guard.
