Isaiah Thomas agrees to one-year deal with Denver Nuggets

Isaiah Thomas is headed to his 6th team in 7 years. 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.

Free agent point guard Isaiah Thomas has reached a one-year, $2 million deal with the Denver Nuggets, according to multiple reports.

It's with the Nuggets that Thomas will be reunited with ex-Sacramento head coach Mike Malone, and part of a Denver squad that finished with 46 wins a season ago (but finished in ninth place in the Western Conference for the second year in a row). A problem with the same joint also knocked him out of the end of the 2017 playoffs.

Originally drafted with the final pick in the 2011 NBA Draft, Thomas has played in 473 NBA games for the Kings, Suns, Celtics, Cavaliers and Lakers.

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.

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).

Thomas averaged 15.2 points in 26.9 minutes per game with the Cavaliers and the Lakers last season. He was selected with the 42nd overall pick in the 2016 NBA Draft by Utah and was acquired by Brooklyn in a draft-night trade.
