NBA Free Agent Rumors: Isaiah Thomas Agrees To Contract With Nuggets

Isaiah Thomas thought the Brink's truck would be backing up for him this offseason.

The two-time All-Star guard has agreed to a one-year, $2 million deal with the Denver Nuggets, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported Thursday night. After impressing with the Boston Celtics during the 2016-17 campaign, which saw Thomas put up a career-best 28.9 points per game, his numbers decreased significantly this past season following an extensive recovery from a hip injury. Thomas re-unites with his former coach in Sacramento, he fills a big need for Denver, and he'll be allowed to go insane off the bench. A problem with the same joint also knocked him out of the end of the 2017 playoffs.

Instead, he is staying out West after his tumultuous 2017-18 season, which began with a move to Cleveland in the Kyrie Irving trade. Thomas played in just 15 games with the Cleveland Cavaliers this past season and was eventually sent via trade to the Los Angeles Lakers. The last man picked in the 2011 National Basketball Association draft played for Malone in Sacramento during the 2013-14 season and averaged 20.3 points and 6.3 assists as the Kings went 28-54. With the Cavaliers struggling, however, they dealt Thomas, Channing Frye and a 2018 first-round draft pick to the Los Angeles Lakers on February 8 for Jordan Clarkson and Larry Nance Jr.
