Isaiah Thomas agrees to deal with Nuggets

Isaiah Thomas was no exception, as the 5-foot-9 dynamo signed a one-year deal for the veteran's minimum with the Denver Nuggets and plans to thrive on a sixth man role in hopes to land a long-term contract next offseason, according to Alex Kennedy of HoopsHype. 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.

Last summer, the Celtics dealt Thomas, Jae Crowder, Ante Zizic, a 2018 first-round draft pick and a 2020 second-rounder to the Cavaliers for guard Kyrie Irving. After 15 games with Cleveland, he was traded to the Lakers at the deadline and played in 17 games. With the Cavaliers struggling, however, they dealt Thomas, Channing Frye and a 2018 first-round draft pick to the Los Angeles Lakers on February 8 for Jordan Clarkson and Larry Nance Jr. After impressing with the Boston Celtics during the 2016-17 campaign, which saw Thomas put up a career-best 28.9 points per game, his numbers decreased significantly this past season following an extensive recovery from a hip injury.

When free agency began, there was a scenario where the Lakers could re-sign Thomas on a one-year deal if they struck out in free agency to preserve cap space.

Macron said France, which previous year spent 1.8 percent on defence, would meet the target by the 2024 deadline. Trump has repeatedly denounced low levels of defense spending among remaining members, particularly Germany.

He'll now come off the bench behind 21-year old Jamal Murray, who is entering his third National Basketball Association season.

The Nuggets finished last season 46-36, but still missed out on the playoffs in the loaded Western Conference.
