Sixers send second-round pick Thomas to Pistons

Khyri Thomas of Creighton is headed to the Pistons.

The Philadelphia 76ers have traded the rights to guard Khyri Thomas to the Detroit Pistons, according to Yahoo Sports.

Thomas was selected by the Sixers with the No. 38 overall pick in Thursday’s NBA draft.

It was not reported what the Pistons will send back to the Sixers, though it is believed to a future second-rounder.

Thomas averaged 15.1 points this past season for the Blue Jays and is a two-time Big East Conference Defensive Player of the Year.
