Denver Nuggets Sign Isaiah Thomas For Veteran Minimum

Denver Nuggets Sign Isaiah Thomas For Veteran Minimum

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

The Denver Nuggets have agreed to a one-year deal with free agent guard Isaiah Thomas, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN. Last July, Thomas famously told CSN New England that he expected the Celtics to "bring the Brinks truck out." 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. After missing most of the first half of the 2017-18 season, he was dealt to the Los Angeles Lakers at the NBA's trading deadline in February.

But this move could be right for Thomas and with the bad luck he's had over the past year, he deserves to get his career back on track in Denver and return to a high level.

That playoff run ended, however, with a hip injury that lingered well past Boston dealing him to Cleveland in exchange for Kyrie Irving. The Cavs soon shipped him to the Lakers, where he played 17 games before getting arthroscopic surgery on his right hip in April.

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

The report states the deal is for the league's veteran minimum. The deal is reportedly worth $2 million.

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.
