Isaiah Thomas agrees to deal with Nuggets

Isaiah Thomas agrees to deal with Nuggets

Thomas had been lingering on the free agent market with few known suitors since his contract expired with the Los Angeles Lakers.

The impending reunion between Denver Nuggets head coach Mike Malone and point guard Isaiah Thomas was one that stemmed from a honest relationship early in their careers. "I think he respected that and admired that, because I wanted him to be the best Isaiah Thomas". In 2016-17, Thomas was the driving force behind the Celtics' run to the Eastern Conference Finals while earning All-NBA Second Team honors along the way. He led the National Basketball Association in fourth quarter points, finished 5th in MVP voting, and was the face of a scrappy Celtics team that even took a game from the Cavs in the conference finals.

That season, though, ended with a hip injury, one that delayed his 2017-18 debut until January.

Thomas averaged 15.2 points in 26.9 minutes per game with the Cavaliers and the Lakers last season.

Maybe these posts had an effect as it was reported soon after that he had signed a one-year deal with the Denver Nuggets. But a torn labrum that cost him eight months of rehab, and a trade to the Cleveland Cavaliers last summer, upended his hopes for that kind of a long-term deal.

The one-year, minimum deal is a gamble for Thomas, though one he may have been forced to take. The deal is reportedly worth $2 million.

Malone had been Thomas' coach during the 2013-14 season in Sacramento, two teams removed from the guard's arrival in Boston.
