Nearly two years after his last NBA game, Tyrus Thomas hopes to return to the league. Not, he said, because he needs the money. He’s just missed the game. Thomas returned to the court at the D-League Showcase on Friday in hopes of making his way back to the NBA. He is making $9.3 million this season from the final year of his amnestied contract with Charlotte.

“The last two years I’ve just been miserable,” Thomas told Yahoo Sports on Friday morning. “I hate when people say, ‘You’re getting paid, so it’s cool.’ No, it’s not [expletive] cool. I’m [expletive] miserable sitting at home. I’m not broke. I’m not desperate for money. When playing basketball is what you love to do and you physically can’t do it and you still have that urge to do it, it’s tough.”
