It doesn't appear that it does. The Sycamore is a type of fig (Ficus Sycomorus), although inferior in quality to what we know as a fig. None of the figs I know have thorns. Add to that the fact it is the tree Zacchaeus climbed to get a better view of Jesus then it doesn't appear to be a thorny plant.
