Isaiah Thomas, Nuggets Agree On One-Year Deal For Minimum

He played three seasons in Sacramento and during his previous year there, he played under Denver's coach Mike Malone.

Thomas, 29, has been steadily progressing in rehabilitation since his early April procedure on his right hip. In 15 games with the Cavs last season, Thomas averaged 14.7 points and 4.5 assists per game, before he was dealt to the Los Angeles Lakers at the National Basketball Association trade deadline. But a torn labrum that cost him eight months of rehab, and a trade to the Cleveland Cavaliers last summer, upended his hopes for that kind of a long-term deal.

Before the injury, Thomas had developed into one of the game's elite scoring point guards, averaging 28.9 points in 2016-17 with the Celtics. Thomas nearly exclusively came off the bench, scoring 15.6 points per game in 17 games with the Lakers. The deal is for one year and $2 million.

Twitter purge hits Uhuru Kenyatta, Ruto and bloggers Nyakundi, Dela
Uhuru, who is the most followed Kenyan on Twitter , had 3,234,935 followers as of July 12 but lost 16,071 of them in the purge. President Donald Trump , went from 53.4 to 53.1 million followers, leaving him in 18th place for Twitter followers.

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. 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. Over his seven-year career, he is averaging 18.9 points and 5.1 assists.

The Kings selected Thomas in the second round (60th overall) in the 2011 draft out of the University of Washington.
