Isaiah Thomas inks deal with Nuggets, Jeremy Lin joins Hawks

Thomas averaged 15.2 points in 26.9 minutes per game with the Cavaliers and the Lakers last season. With the Cavaliers struggling, however, they dealt Thomas, Channing Frye and a 2018 first-round draft pick to the Los Angeles Lakers on February 8 for Jordan Clarkson and Larry Nance Jr.

Isaiah Thomas was no exception, as the 5-foot-9 dynamo signed a one-year deal for the veteran's minimum with the Denver Nuggets and plans to thrive on a sixth man role in hopes to land a long-term contract next offseason, according to Alex Kennedy of HoopsHype.

Prior to the odd campaign Thomas put together a year ago 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.

Thomas has been working his way back from a procedure on his hip and if he rebounds on the court this season, he could provide a strong option for the Nuggets while reestablishing his value before becoming a free agent again.

North Korean and U.S. teams, as well as United Nations officials, had been due to discuss the details of repatriation. The Pentagon has shipped dozens of cases to Panmunjom in anticipation of receiving the remains of several US troops.

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

After opening his National Basketball Association career with the Sacramento Kings in 2011-12 and subsequently playing for the Phoenix Suns, Thomas exploded into stardom with the Boston Celtics.

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

In 17 games, including just one start, for Los Angeles, Thomas averaged 15.6 points and five assists.
