NBA: Isaiah Thomas signs with Denver Nuggets

Published

After two short stints with the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Los Angeles Lakers last season, Isaiah Thomas will be on the move once again.

The former All-Star guard agreed to a one-year deal for the veteran’s minimum with the Denver Nuggets, per Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

Thomas suited up last season for the eventual Finals runners-up but he was shipped to the Los Angeles Lakers at the trade deadline.

The 5-foot-9 point guard was a key component of the Boston Celtics’ package that landed them a disenchanted Kyrie Irving from the Cavs.

Thomas blossomed into a superstar as a member of the Celtics and became the lowest pick (60th overall) to ever make an All-Star team.

Two seasons ago, Thomas spearheaded Boston to a first-seed campaign before eventually bowing out to Cleveland in the Eastern Conference Finals. He also led the league in fourth quarter scoring and averaged 28.9 points and 5.9 assists.

Thomas played through an injured hip throughout the 2017 playoffs and never returned to star status since making his comeback last September.
