NBA Reports: Isaiah Thomas headed to the Nuggets

Isaiah Thomas

After a few days of inaction, the National Basketball Association free agent market is suddenly back in full swing.

Isaiah Thomas has agreed to join the Denver Nuggets on a one-year contract, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN. "I think he respected that and admired that, because I wanted him to be the best Isaiah Thomas". The year before, Thomas led the Celtics to the Eastern Conference Finals, averaging 28.9 points and 5.9 assists per game on 46% shooting, 37% from three. Thomas regained some of his offensive pop during his brief run with the Lakers, averaging 15.6 points per contest and shooting nearly 40 percent, but was shut down when his ailing hip flared up late in the year.

The report states the deal is for the league's veteran minimum.

When the Celtics traded Thomas to the Cavs as part of a package to land Kyrie Irving last summer, the deal was initially held up over fears about Thomas' hip.




Thomas will be used as a scoring punch off the bench, and likely thrive under a coach who knows his skill set very well and is willing to put him in situations to succeed and make the most of his abilities after coming off two hip surgeries in the past year.

Thomas' one-year deal is essentially a "prove it" deal.

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

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