Entering his eighth National Basketball Association season, Isaiah Thomas apparently will be joining a sixth team. He suited up in 17 games for the Lakers before hip surgery ended a season in which he shot just 37.3 percent from the field.
Isaiah Thomas has reportedly agreed to a one-year deal with the Nuggets.
Thomas will reunite with Michael Malone, who coached him with the Sacramento Kings. A problem with the same joint also knocked him out of the end of the 2017 playoffs.
When free agency began, there was a scenario where the Lakers could re-sign Thomas on a one-year deal if they struck out in free agency to preserve cap space. He was an All-Star in both 2015-16 and 2016-17, averaging 25.5 points and 6.1 points in those seasons combined. The following year he started off in Phoenix before getting traded to Boston.
Thomas averaged 15.2 points in 26.9 minutes per game with the Cavaliers and the Lakers last season.
The Kings selected Thomas in the second round (60th overall) in the 2011 draft out of the University of Washington.
Now Thomas is healthy and hopes to re-capture his All-NBA form, reminding everyone that he's a dynamic scoring guard capable of leading a team like he did in Boston.
