Free agent point guard Dallas Mavericks could still sign: 4. Isaiah Thomas

Thomas signed a ten-day contract with the Mavs last season as they were dealing with a COVID outbreak, but he only lasted one game before entering the health and safety protocols. IT had six points and four assists in just 13 minutes of action as the Mavericks lost a heart-breaker to the Sacramento Kings.

Thomas caught on with the Hornets after his contract expired in Dallas where he averaged 8.3 points and 1.4 assists in 12.9 minutes per over 17 games. The 5’9 point guard can still get a bucket, but things are a bit tougher at 33 years old.

The Pizza Guy does not bring the defense head coach Jason Kidd desires, but he would give the team a strong scoring and playmaking option. Dallas added Christian Wood to pick up the scoring slack left by Jalen Brunson’s departure. The Mavericks need someone that can handle the ball and run their offense. Isaiah Thomas has some familiarity from his brief stint last season, and he is just patiently waiting for another shot from any NBA team.

There are worse players to take a flier on. IT is a two-time All-Star that can still get buckets. Do not count out a reunion, especially if the Dallas Mavericks decide to go for a more score-first option off the bench.
