Case for former Dallas Mavericks guard Isaiah Thomas signing with another NBA team

IT had just finished a ten-day deal with the Los Angeles Lakers before signing with the Mavs. He played four games for LA where he averaged 9.3 points, 2.0 rebounds, and 1.5 assists per game. His percentages were not pretty, but Thomas provided some instant offense off the bench.

With the Mavs, he proved he can still run a pick and roll to create easy buckets. IT dished out four quick dimes to the team’s big men rolling to the basket. Two of his three made field goals came out of pick and roll situations as well.

Thomas is 32 years old and has not played in more than 40 NBA games in a season since the 2016-2017 campaign, but the veteran can still provide some instant offense. A team looking to jumpstart a stagnate offense could sign IT to lead their second unit. He cannot handle more than 25 minutes per game, but the 5’9 guard is comfortable coming off the bench and making plays.

Isaiah Thomas played well for the Dallas Mavericks considering he was signed just hours before tipoff, but will he get another NBA opportunity this season?
