Now Thomas is healthy and hopes to re-capture his All-NBA form, reminding everyone that he's a dynamic scoring guard capable of leading a team like he did in Boston.

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

Thomas was traded to the Cavaliers last season as a part of the Kyrie Irving deal, but he never fully recovered from an injured hip.

For the Nuggets, they needed a backup point guard who could carry the offense when Murray sits.

He guided the Celtics in the 2017 Eastern Conference finals against the Cleveland Cavaliers before he was sidelined due to the hip ailment.

Thomas will reunite with his former coach in Sacramento, Mike Malone, with the Nuggets. Instead, he'll be playing for the veteran's minimum.

Veteran's minimum deal for Thomas, sources tell ESPN. He was shipped to the Los Angeles Lakers, where he backed up Lonzo Ball, averaging 15.6 points. 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. Center Nikola Jokic, one of the most unique players in the National Basketball Association, is the team's lead facilitator from the middle, kicking to wings like Gary Harris, Will Barton, and Jamal Murray. Two years ago, he was a MVP candidate for the Boston Celtics, averaging 28.9 points and being heralded as one of the clutchest players in the league.
