  • Isaiah Thomas Expresses Interest In Celtics Return

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.

Thomas has been working his way back from a procedure on his hip and if he rebounds on the court this season, he could provide a strong option for the Nuggets while reestablishing his value before becoming a free agent again.

Isaiah Thomas is staying in the West and joining the Nuggets on a one-year, $2 million deal, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.com reports. Denver's head coach, Mike Malone, envisions using Thomas to build on leads established by the team's young core, headlined by Jamal Murray, Gary Harris and Nikola Jokic. A problem with the same joint also knocked him out of the end of the 2017 playoffs.


After missing those the first 36 games of last season, Thomas returned to average 14.7 points and 4.5 assists in 15 games (14 starts).

At least one former Celtics guard is on the move. He was an All-Star in both 2015-16 and 2016-17, averaging 25.5 points and 6.1 points in those seasons combined.

At the 2017-18 National Basketball Association trade deadline, the Los Angeles Lakers traded Jordan Clarkson and Larry Nance Jr.to the Cleveland Cavaliers for Isaiah Thomas, Channing Frye, and a 2018 first round draft pick. The following year he started off in Phoenix before getting traded to Boston.
