Nuggets deal Faried, Arthur to the Nets

Report Former Celtic Isaiah Thomas signs in Denver

Free agent guard Isaiah Thomas has agreed to a one-year, $2 million deal with the Denver Nuggets, league sources told ESPN. Appearing in just 17 games for the Lakers as Lonzo Ball's backup, he averaged 15.6 points, 2.1 rebounds, and 5.0 assists in 26.8 minutes.

Thomas was initially resistant to the idea during his time with the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Los Angeles Lakers last season, but a cruel market has forced him to think things over and re-assess what is best for his career.

Prior to the odd campaign Thomas put together previous year in which he started in only 15 of the 32 games he played, he appeared set for a big payday in the summer of 2018.

According to ESPN, Thomas will have a key role as an off-the-bench scorer.

Thomas missed the first 36 games and final 11 games of last season due to right hip surgery.

Typhoon Maria barrels into China after hitting Taiwan
Originally anticipated to make landfall around noon today, Maria touched down north of Fuzhou, in Fujian province, at 9.10am. More than 6,800 people are on standby for rescue missions or to fix damage.

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.

If Thomas can get himself in the race for Sixth Man of the Year, his value can surely rise by next offseason - but he will be competing with a myriad of other players who've chosen this same route.

As we know, Boston then traded Thomas to the Cavs that Summer as part of the Irving deal.

Thomas was taken by the Kings with the last pick in the 2011 draft.
