NBA Trade Grades: Nuggets dump Kenneth Faried to Nets

NBA Trade Grades: Nuggets dump Kenneth Faried to Nets

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

Free agent point guard Isaiah Thomas has reached a one-year, $2 million deal with the Denver Nuggets, according to multiple reports. "I think he respected that and admired that, because I wanted him to be the best Isaiah Thomas". The Celtics reached the Eastern Conference Finals that year but a hip injury kept Thomas sidelined as LeBron James, Kyrie Irving and the Cavs advanced to the NBA Finals.

But this move could be right for Thomas and with the bad luck he's had over the a year ago, he deserves to get his career back on track in Denver and return to a high level.

Thomas has been working his way back from a procedure on his hip and if he rebounds on the court this season, he could provide a strong option for the Nuggets while reestablishing his value before becoming a free agent again.

That season, though, ended with a hip injury, one that delayed his 2017-18 debut until January. The deal, sources told Wojnarowski, is for the veteran minimum.

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. He averaged 15 points per game in his 32 contests, far from the 29 points per game he averaged in the 2016-17 season as a member of the Celtics. The deal is reportedly worth $2 million.
