The 29-year-old point guard agreed to a one-year deal for the veteran's minimum with the Denver Nuggets Thursday night, a league source confirmed. The move reunites him with head coach Mike Malone, Thomas' former coach with the Sacramento Kings.
Thomas likely sees this as a potential bridge season for him to prove that he's healthy and still capable of being the player he was for the Boston Celtics two seasons ago. He was an All-Star in both 2015-16 and 2016-17, averaging 25.5 points and 6.1 points in those seasons combined.More news: Donald Trump ready to help some North Atlantic Treaty Organisation states buy USA arms
He enjoyed a massive breakout the previous season with the Celtics, scoring 28.9 points per game and finishing fifth in MVP voting, helping Boston reach the Eastern Conference Finals. He was traded to Cleveland last summer along with Jae Crowder, Ante Zizic and a pair of picks for Kyrie Irving. Brooklyn, meanwhile, continues to slowly restock its cache of draft picks after recovering from the ill-fated trade for Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce with Boston in 2013.
In 17 games, including just one start, for Los Angeles, Thomas averaged 15.6 points and five assists.More news: Tour de France: Tom Dumoulin gets 20 second time penalty for drafting
