Isaiah Thomas agrees to one-year deal with Denver Nuggets

What the Nets Nuggets and Hawks got out of Thursday night’s salary swaps

What the Nets Nuggets and Hawks got out of Thursday night’s salary swaps

Isaiah Thomas thought the Brink's truck would be backing up for him this offseason.

If that's going to happen, it will occur in Denver, as the Nuggets signed Thomas as an unrestricted free agent, per Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN. However, just months later he was traded to the Cavaliers in the deal that sent Kyrie Irving to Boston.

Hip injuries are tricky, so it's going to be fascinating to see if the surgery Thomas received will completely fix the issues that have hobbled him for the previous year.

As the National Basketball Association 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. Thomas gives the team another fun weapon to work with, and the Nuggets could be a good situation with which he can prove his abilities, a year removed from a season when he was getting light MVP buzz. He was an All-Star in both 2015-16 and 2016-17, averaging 25.5 points and 6.1 points in those seasons combined. After 15 games with Cleveland, he was traded to the Lakers at the deadline and played in 17 games.

The limited market for Thomas came as a result of a forgettable 32-game 2017-18 season split between the Cavaliers and Lakers, and with Thomas' hip not looking like it was fully healed all the while.
