Isaiah Thomas has agreed upon a one-year deal worth $2 million with the Denver Nuggets.

Isaiah Thomas has finally found a new home. The last man picked in the 2011 National Basketball Association draft played for Malone in Sacramento during the 2013-14 season and averaged 20.3 points and 6.3 assists as the Kings went 28-54. Thomas has been dealing with the lingering effects from right hip surgery he underwent in 2017, as well as a torn labrum.

The 29-year-old point guard finished last season with the Los Angeles Lakers following a February trade from the Cleveland Cavaliers.

In 17 games, including just one start, for Los Angeles, Thomas averaged 15.6 points and five assists. With L.A., Thomas played slightly better (though he continued struggling with his shooting) and was reportedly a positive influence on the Lakers' younger players. The deal, sources told Wojnarowski, is for the veteran minimum. Questions remained about his hip, overall health, and future in the league.

He added: "I played very well in Queen's (where he finished runner-up) coming into Wimbledon ". But by the time his semifinal starts, it will be Djokovic against the world, again.

Thomas' one-year deal is essentially a "prove it" deal.

"I say this with all sincerity: I love the kid", Malone said before Thomas left for Boston, according to Nick Kosmider of The Athletic. He likely will come off the bench in Denver, where he'll have a chance to be a lead scorer for the second unit, giving the Nuggets a boost when their starters are out.

Malone had been Thomas' coach during the 2013-14 season in Sacramento, two teams removed from the guard's arrival in Boston.
