Malcolm Thomas Will Play For Good Money In Korea Next Season

Malcolm Thomas was one of the best players to go undrafted in the 2011 NBA Draft, but that hasn't stopped the San Diego State forward from earning good money to play basketball for the upcoming season.

Thomas has signed with Mobis Phoebus in South Korea, according to asiabasket.com, for nice salary of $350,000 in United States currency. Jonathan Givony of Draft Express opined on Twitter that Thomas, lockout-pending, might be the highest paid rookie in the world this year.

"He is a fast and athletic guy. He keeps the ball and can pass well with his size. That's why we want him," Mobis Phoebus staff said in a press release.

It's a bit surprising that Thomas decided to take the money and run considering he was invited to the Atlanta Hawks free agent camp last month and probably had a few NBA training camp offers as well after averaging 11.4 points, 8.1 rebounds and 2.0 blocks for the Aztecs alongside Kawhi Leonard this season.
