Malcolm Thomas, who signed a 10-day contract with the Warriors on March 8, is headed to Chicago.
Thomas became a free agent after his contract with the Warriors expired and opted to return to the organization he played with during the Summer League on another 10-day deal, according to RealGM.com.
Thomas confirmed the move on Twitter.

He appeared in five games for Golden State, registering three points and five rebounds in 21 minutes, including 10 minutes and two points against the Bulls.
The San Diego State product first caught the eye of Warriors coach Mark Jackson during the summer.
“I thought he was the best big guy in the summer league in Vegas,” Jackson said. “Played extremely well and we get an opportunity to take a close look at him see what we have, but he’s a guy that we like.”
Thomas thanked Jackson for the opportunity on Twitter
I wanna thank coach Jackson and the Warriors orginization for the opportunity to play in their organization! I'm forever thankful— Malcolm Thomas (@Malcolm4Thomas) March 18, 2013
Thomas also played in one game with the Santa Cruz Warriors of the NBA Development league during his stint with Golden State. In his one appearance, he scored eight points and pulled down 15 rebounds.
