Isaiah Thomas Agrees to 1-Year Nuggets Contract After Brief Lakers Stint

Coming off a frustrating 2017-18 season, Isaiah Thomas will seek a return to his All-Star form with the Denver Nuggets.

According to ESPN.com's Adrian Wojnarowski, Thomas and the Nuggets agreed to terms Thursday on a one-year deal for the veteran's minimum.

Thomas developed into a superstar during two full seasons with the Boston Celtics. He averaged a career-high 28.9 points per game during the 2016-17 campaign, leading the Celtics to the best record in the Eastern Conference (53-29) in the process.

The Celtics traded him to the Cavs in August 2017 as part of the Kyrie Irving deal. After sitting out the season's first 36 games, the 29-year-old struggled in his return with 14.7 points per contest on 36.1 percent shooting.

The Cavaliers dealt Thomas to the Los Angeles Lakers at the Feb. 8 trade deadline. There was a slight improvement in his performance after the deal. He averaged 15.6 points per game and shot 38.3 percent.
