WKTY is auctioning off an autographed Matt Thomas jersey from his time with Valencia.
Thomas, who signed with the Toronto Raptors this offseason to a three-year, $4.2 million contract, donated the jersey and a photo.
The money raised will go to Chili Fest and DARE.
Thomas, who lit up the NBA’s Summer League two seasons ago with the L.A. Lakers, after graduating a four-year starter from Iowa State, went on to play overseas for two years.
The past two seasons, he played for Valencia, in the EuroCup and Liga ACB.
There, he shot 49.6 percent from the field and 47.2 percent from beyond the arc. He averaged 12 points, including 3.6 3-pointers per game.’
