Isaiah Thomas Inks Deal With Denver Nuggets

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

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

But last summer, the Celtics had other ideas and did the complete opposite. It was only two seasons ago when Thomas was a legitimate MVP candidate, averaging a tick under 30 points per game for the top-seeded Celtics in the 2016-17 season.

Once he took to the floor, however, he wasn't the same player and he struggled to get any sort of rhythm.

Thomas was traded to the Cavaliers last season as a part of the Kyrie Irving deal, but he never fully recovered from an injured hip. Second-year pro Jamal Murray started at point guard for them last season, scoring 16.7 points per game. One image showed him among the NBA's top scorers that season - Russell Westbrook, James Harden, and Kawhi Leonard - with the caption, "So Quick to forget!" Thomas dropped 53 points on the Washington Wizards in a 129-119 Game 2 victory on May 2, the day Chyna Thomas would have turned 23.

When asked what he admired about defending champion Federer, the 32-year-old Anderson was happy to reel off an exhaustive check-list.

He also put up a picture of himself alongside Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant accompanied by an impressive stat.

The two-time All-Star said "it's all good" if people don't remember how prolific he was as he'll continue to work hard to prove them wrong and get back to his best.

Thomas agreed to a one-year, $2 million deal with Denver on Thursday night, ESPN reported. Thomas regained some of his offensive pop during his brief run with the Lakers, averaging 15.6 points per contest and shooting nearly 40 percent, but was shut down when his ailing hip flared up late in the year.
