Isaiah Thomas inks deal with Nuggets, Jeremy Lin joins Hawks

Isaiah Thomas has reportedly agreed to a one-year deal with the Denver Nuggets. More

After an absolutely sensational 2016-17 campaign with the Boston Celtics ended prematurely due to a hip injury, Thomas was traded to Cleveland, struggled after returning from the aforementioned injury, got traded to the Lakers at the deadline, then underwent surgery to fix his injured hip after 17 games.

The Isaiah Thomas free agency market wasn't too competitive this off-season. Instead, he'll be playing for the veteran's minimum.

The 29-year-old point guard agreed to a one-year deal for the veteran's minimum with the Denver Nuggets Thursday night, a league source confirmed.

But it was in Cleveland that Thomas proved to be a horrendous fit with LeBron James.

For the Nuggets, they needed a backup point guard who could carry the offense when Murray sits.

After opening his National Basketball Association career with the Sacramento Kings in 2011-12 and subsequently playing for the Phoenix Suns, Thomas exploded into stardom with the Boston Celtics.

For Thomas, this is unfortunate timing as he was one of the best players in the league at one point. As Nuggets coach Michael Malone prepared to address the media following a pre-game shootaround, Thomas strolled by and the two exchanged a knowing smile. He averaged 15.2 points, 4.8 assists and 2.1 rebounds over 32 total games in 2017-18. If things go well, maybe the Brink's truck will be around next offseason.
