Isaiah Thomas Signing Veteran’s Minimum Deal With Nuggets

Free-agent guard Isaiah Thomas agreed to a one-year, $2 million deal with the Denver Nuggets, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported Thursday. The deal is for one year and will pay Thomas $2 million. Thomas' injuries continued to hamper him and he played poorly when healthy, shooting just 36 percent from the floor in 15 games.

The Nuggets are a good team in a very tough Western Conference, but they could be even better if they get Thomas anywhere near what he was in his final season in Boston when he averaged 28.9 points per game.

Last season, Thomas started with the Cavaliers, but he did not get to take the court until January due to a hip injury he was recovering from. He averaged 15.2 points and 4.8 assists, a far cry from his All-Star seasons with the Celtics. Eventually, he'd end up getting traded to the Lakers. Over his seven-year career, he is averaging 18.9 points and 5.1 assists.
