The 29-year-old point guard finished last season with the Los Angeles Lakers following a February trade from the Cleveland Cavaliers. Very few teams had money to spend, and IT never quite looked fully recovered from the injury that he suffered late in 2017 as a Boston Celtic.

Thomas also seemed to hint at a possible return to Boston. He was traded to the Cleveland Cavaliers in a swap of star guards in August.

Former Los Angeles Lakers guard Isaiah Thomas has signed a one-year $2.3 million deal with the Denver Nuggets, per ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski. Instead, he'll be playing for the veteran's minimum.

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. The deal, sources told Wojnarowski, is for the veteran minimum. The Celtics reached the Eastern Conference Finals that year but a hip injury kept Thomas sidelined as LeBron James, Kyrie Irving and the Cavs advanced to the NBA Finals. 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. Two years ago, he was a MVP candidate for the Boston Celtics, averaging 28.9 points and being heralded as one of the clutchest players in the league.
