Isaiah Thomas has finally found a new home.
Free agent guard Isaiah Thomas has agreed to a one-year contract worth the veteran's minimum with the Denver Nuggets, reports ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski. After he missed half the season following hip surgery that rendered him out during the 2017 C's playoff run, Thomas was later shipped to the Lakers at the Cavs' deadline purge.
According to Wojnarowski, Thomas recently got together with Nuggets coach Michael Malone and president of basketball operations Tim Connelly in Las Vegas to discuss his potential place in the club's plans. He was an All-Star in both 2015-16 and 2016-17, averaging 25.5 points and 6.1 points in those seasons combined.
If Thomas can get himself in the race for Sixth Man of the Year, his value can surely rise by next offseason - but he will be competing with a myriad of other players who've chosen this same route. Thomas nearly exclusively came off the bench, scoring 15.6 points per game in 17 games with the Lakers. Brooklyn, meanwhile, continues to slowly restock its cache of draft picks after recovering from the ill-fated trade for Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce with Boston in 2013. Over his seven-year career, he is averaging 18.9 points and 5.1 assists.
