Besides from the upcoming NBA All-Star Weekend, the mid-season trade deadline is the hottest topics in the league and some players didn’t benefit from these transactions.
One of those players is former Boston Celtics main man Isaiah Thomas. He was part of a three-team deal which brought Marcus Morris and himself to the Clippers but unfortunately the team waived him before he even suits up.
This was confirmed by Clippers President of Basketball Operations Lawrence Frank on Saturday as the team looks to add another lockdown defender and a straight up shooter to bolster their title chances even further this year.
Ever since suffering a hip injury in the 2017 playoffs and being involved in a blockbuster trade in August 2017, the 2011 draftee hasn’t found a good run with his career.
Thomas hopped to three teams after his stint for the Cavs (Los Angles Lakers in February 2018, Denver Nuggets in July 2018 and Washington Wizards in July 2019).
So far this season, Isaiah Thomas is averaging 12.2 points per game (on 40.8 FG percentage and 41.3 percent beyond the arc), 3.7 assists per game and 1.7 rebounds per game in 23.1 minutes of action.
Overall, his career averages in 8 NBA seasons are 18.1 points per game (on 43.6 FG percentage and 36.4 percent beyond the arc), 5 assists per game and 2.5 rebounds per game. Thomas now will try to find a new team that is willing to sign him for the rest of the current season.
