It has been a tough season for Davis averaging 6.9 points and 1.9 rebounds through 34 games and seemingly losing favour with Nick Nurse. He was coming off the final year of his deal with the Raptors after signing as an undrafted free agent.
Thomas joined the team last season after spending time in the Spanish league. He was brought in to be a dependable shooter off the bench but he struggled to grab a prominent spot in the rotation averaging 2.7 points per game on 41.5 per cent three-point shooting this season.
There is no denying Thomas’ ability to shoot from beyond the arc and should be able to help the Utah Jazz and the Raptors once again recoup a second-round pick for a player that likely wasn’t going to be a big part of the team going forward.
