Thomas was selected as a member of the USA Women's U19 team which won the gold medal at the FIBA U19 World Championship in Bratislava, Slovakia. The event was held in July and August 2007, when the USA team defeated Sweden to win the championship. She averaged 7.4 points per game.
Thomas was selected in the first round of the 2011 WNBA Draft (12th overall) by the Seattle Storm. Prior to her rookie season she was traded to the Washington Mystics on April 29, 2011 in a three-team trade deal; with the Indiana Fever receiving Erin Phillips and the Storm's third round draft pick, and the Storm receiving Katie Smith, Jacinta Monroe and the Fever's second round pick. Thomas played for the Mystics for two seasons before being traded to the Atlanta Dream in 2013 in exchange for the Dream's two first round draft picks and a second round draft pick. During her two-year stint with the Dream, Thomas made her first WNBA Finals appearance as the Dream advanced all the way to the 2013 WNBA Finals, where they got swept by the Minnesota Lynx. In 2015, Thomas re-signed with the Dream in free agency. Months later, Thomas was traded to the Connecticut Sun in exchange for draft rights to Brittany Hrynko.
In 2015, Thomas became the Sun's starting point guard and started in all 34 games for the first time in her career. In the 2016 season, she continued her role as the Sun's starting point guard; she achieved new career-highs in scoring, assists and field goal shooting. She averaged 11.7 ppg, 5.1 apg while shooting 40% from the field. In 2017, Thomas re-signed with the Sun in free agency.
