Isaiah Thomas gets another shot at National Basketball Association relevance

After a few days of inaction, the National Basketball Association free agent market is suddenly back in full swing.

Entering his eighth National Basketball Association season, Isaiah Thomas apparently will be joining a sixth team.

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.

They remained apart for two months, with Pulex in detention in El Paso and her daughter sent to live with a foster family in MI . Four have already been reunited with some family, while 34 others should be reunited by the end of the day, the government said.

That season, though, ended with a hip injury, one that delayed his 2017-18 debut until January. He was then dealt to the Lakers, where he averaged 15.6 points in 17 games. With L.A., Thomas played slightly better (though he continued struggling with his shooting) and was reportedly a positive influence on the Lakers' younger players.

Thomas, who is a two-time All-Star player, was dealing with a hip injury that eventually required surgery.

The one-year, minimum deal is a gamble for Thomas, though one he may have been forced to take.

Originally drafted with the final pick in the 2011 NBA Draft, Thomas has played in 473 NBA games for the Kings, Suns, Celtics, Cavaliers and Lakers. But questions remain regarding his long-term health.

Thomas' one-year deal is essentially a "prove it" deal.

Thomas will earn $2 million, according to Wojnarowski. He likely will come off the bench in Denver, where he'll have a chance to be a lead scorer for the second unit, giving the Nuggets a boost when their starters are out.
