Cam Thomas was known as a “bucket getter” at LSU, and a few years into his NBA career, he’s beginning to make a mark as a pro.

Thomas, a former five-star recruit, was a late first-round pick by the Brooklyn Nets in 2021 following one season at LSU. He’s seen more playing time as of late, and the Nets are being rewarded for it with Thomas dropping 44 on the Lakers Saturday night.

Thomas has played over 20 minutes in three straight games, averaging 28 points per contest in that span.

Thomas came off the bench and helped spark a Nets comeback win.

It was Thomas’ fourth time crossing the 20-point mark this year and the 14th time in his career. In his lone season with the Tigers, Thomas averaged 23 per night and helped Will Wade’s Tigers pick up a win in the NCAA Tournament.

The Nets’ recent trade of Kyrie Irving could create even more opportunities for Thomas.

Thomas told the media he always had the ability that was on display last night. How the Nets use Thomas will be something to watch moving forward.
