Brooklyn Nets exercise fourth-year team options on Cam Thomas and Day’Ron Sharpe

After a heartbreaking 114-113 loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers in their season opener, the Brooklyn Nets had some good news to share with the rest of the NBA world.

On Thursday, the Nets announced that they exercised the fourth-year team options on Cam Thomas and Day’Ron Sharpe. Both players will earn close to $4.0 million next season and will be restricted free-agents in the summer of 2025, according to Spotrac. Brooklyn had until Oct. 31 to decide if they were going to exercise those options so it looks like they were always more than ready to do so.

Thomas, 22, started his third season in the league with a virtuoso as he scored 36 points off the bench. That was the most points scored by a bench player in a season opener in NBA history.

Sharpe, 21, did not have the kind of performance that Thomas had, but he’s still been solid for a Brooklyn team needing a capable backup center so that Nic Claxton, the starting center, can get rest when he needs it. Sharpe will turn 22 years old on Nov. 1.
