Isaiah Thomas Reportedly Agrees to One-Year Contract with Nuggets

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

Adrian Wojnarowski broke the news and revealed that Isaiah had signed a deal for the veteran minimum of $2 million, which is a far cry from the Brinks truck he was hoping for.

Isaiah Thomas #7, then of the Los Angeles Lakers, looks to pass the ball during the game against the Orlando Magic at STAPLES Center on March 7, 2017 in Los Angeles, California. 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.

No player tanked their value as a free agent more over the past year than Isaiah Thomas.

But in March, Thomas had to undergo hip surgery, ending his season and pushing him into the open market on one of the most sour notes possible. He averaged 15.6 points per game on 38.3 percent shooting from the field and 32.7 percent shooting from 3-point range. 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. But questions remain regarding his long-term health. There, he started just one game, coming off the bench in his other 16 appearances. The deal is for one year and will pay Thomas $2 million.

Thomas likely sees this as a potential bridge season for him to prove that he's healthy and still capable of being the player he was for the Boston Celtics two seasons ago.
