Thomas will make his debut this Friday, Dec. 21, during the network's coverage of the Chicago Bulls-New York Knicks game. From 2003-08 Thomas served as the president of basketball operations for the Knicks and as the coach also for his last two years on the job. He left the team in the wake of a sexual harassment scandal in 2008, and his tenure with New York was constantly marred by controversy and losing.
Thomas is best known for his 13 seasons playing for the Detroit Pistons, where he won two NBA championships in 1989 and 1990. He was named as one of the league's 50 greatest players.
He is also a former executive with the Toronto Raptors and a former coach for the Indiana Pacers. He briefly served as a television analyst for NBC as well.
