The Lakers had already been linked to Thomas by the veteran reporter Marc Stein, but this is the first mention of a workout.
Still, there is no indication the Lakers are in a hurry to add another player.
“A signing is not imminent,” Haynes reported. “The Lakers could also elect to bring players into training camp to fight for the last few roster spots.”
Either way, Haynes added that LA has prioritized signing a third point guard, as well as another guard/forward type.
That said, the Lakers also lost Kyle Kuzma, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Andre Drummond, Montrezl Harrell and Alex Caruso, and will still need someone to start alongside James, Westbrook and Anthony Davis.
Thomas, 32, is 5-fooot-9 and appeared in just three games last season, all with the Pelicans. He spent 2019-20 with the Wizards, his best recent season, averaging 12.2 points and 3.7 assists.
Collison, 33, is best known for his time with the Pacers, but retired at the end of the 2018-19 season. He has been considering a return to the NBA over the past year.
Mike James, 30, split last season between Russian club CSKA Moscow and the Nets.
