Free agent guard Isaiah Thomas has agreed to a one-year contract worth the veteran's minimum with the Denver Nuggets, reports ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.
As the NBA insider points out, in joining the Nuggets the 29-year-old Thomas will reunite with head coach Michael Malone who coached him when he played for the Sacramento Kings.
Agreeing to just a one-year deal at the veteran’s minimum is a far cry from what many thought Thomas would have been able to garner as a free agent not long ago. After impressing with the Boston Celtics during the 2016-17 campaign, which saw Thomas put up a career-best 28.9 points per game, his numbers decreased significantly this past season following an extensive recovery from a hip injury.
In a combined 32 games with the Cleveland Cavaliers and Los Angeles Lakers during the 2017-18 campaign, Thomas averaged 15.2 points and 4.8 assists.
