All-Star guard Isaiah Thomas is on his next team, reportedly agreeing to a 10-day deal with Dallas Mavericks. He is expected to join the team immediately as they prepare for the road game against the Sacramento Kings.
Thomas, 32, is out of a 10-day contract with the Los Angeles Lakers. He averaged 9.3 points in four games for the Southern California team.
The two-time All-Star with the Boston Celtics has only played a total of seven games over the past two seasons because hip injury which requires surgery. He started his career playing three seasons for the Kings before spending a brief stint with the Phoenix Suns en route to a memorable game against the Celtics.
Dallas’ roster, like many others across the league, has been hit hard by the recent COVID-19 outbreak. The Mavericks have placed nine players in league protocol this month, with center Boban Marjanovic and guard Knight Brandon added to the list on Wednesday. (Knight is on a 10-day contract with the Mavericks.)
Forward Reggie Bullock is currently the only player cleared to exit the protocol after missing five games, according to ESPN.
