Isaiah Thomas inks deal with Nuggets, Jeremy Lin joins Hawks

Isaiah Thomas has finally signed with a team.

Isaiah Thomas has agreed upon a one-year deal worth $2 million with the Denver Nuggets.

No player tanked their value as a free agent more over the past year than Isaiah Thomas.

While this deal appears to be out of nowhere, it certainly makes sense.

According to Apple , the updated MacBook Pro 13 should deliver twice the performance of its predecessors with 7th Gen Intel chips. The new MacBook Pros feature Apple's T2 chip, which debuted in the iMac Pro and adds "Hey Siri" support to the Mac.

But it was in Cleveland that Thomas proved to be a horrendous fit with LeBron James. Thomas regained some of his offensive pop during his brief run with the Lakers, averaging 15.6 points per contest and shooting nearly 40 percent, but was shut down when his ailing hip flared up late in the year.

At the 2017-18 National Basketball Association trade deadline, the Los Angeles Lakers traded Jordan Clarkson and Larry Nance Jr.to the Cleveland Cavaliers for Isaiah Thomas, Channing Frye, and a 2018 first round draft pick.

For the Nuggets, they needed a backup point guard who could carry the offense when Murray sits. Thomas was in MVP contention in his final campaign with Boston, but things went downhill when he injured his hip.

The veteran's minimum certainly isn't what Thomas was expecting this time a year ago. Thomas, 29, will now reunite with Nuggets head coach Mike Malone, who coached IT when he was a member of the Sacramento Kings during the 2013-14 season. He struggled upon his return after missing the first two-and-a-half months trying to avoid surgery, had some difficulty adjusting once he did return and was eventually dealt to the Los Angeles Lakers at the trade deadline.
