Isaiah Thomas, Nuggets Agree On One-Year Deal For Minimum

Thomas had been lingering on the free agent market with few known suitors since his contract expired with the Los Angeles Lakers.

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.

Isaiah Thomas has finally found a new home.

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. 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 will be used as a scoring punch off the bench, and likely thrive under a coach who knows his skill set very well and is willing to put him in situations to succeed and make the most of his abilities after coming off two hip surgeries in the past year.

Duke and Duchess of Sussex meet President Higgins
A cheeky toddler couldn't resist touching the Duchess of Sussex's hair during her visit to Dublin's Croke Park on Wednesday. It's interesting to note that Meghan appeared to have eschewed tights on this occasion, breaking with royal protocol.

That season, though, ended with a hip injury, one that delayed his 2017-18 debut until January. In addition to not meshing with James upon his return to game action, Thomas never appeared to be on the same page as Cavs coach Ty Lue (Thomas at one point questioned the Cavs' coaching techniques), and shot at a career-worst 25.3 percent behind the arc before he was shipped to the Lakers near the trade deadline.

ESPN first reported Thomas's signing.

Thomas will earn $2 million, according to Wojnarowski.

Just 12 months ago, Isaiah Thomas was on a high after coming off his best season in the National Basketball Association with the Boston Celtics where he was an MVP candidate.
