• Isaiah Thomas has been waived by the Clippers a day before his 31st birthday
  • He had his best years with the Boston Celtics
  • Thomas was a part of the three-team trade between New York, Washington, and LA

Unlike the noise that was created by the Cleveland Cavaliers and Boston Celtics trade, Isaiah Thomas found himself once again on the move and worse, the team that he landed is not keen on making a room for the former MVP candidate.

In the three-team deal between New York, Los Angeles, and Washington, the Knicks received Maurice Harkless, three draft picks, and the rights to the Ukrainian guard Issuf Sanon while the Wizards got Jerome Robinson.

A former two-time All-Star, Thomas found himself moving to the Clippers together with now-former Knicks forward Marcus Morris, who was the leading scorer for New York before the transaction. Thomas had nothing but praises to the Wizards organization for giving him a chance to prove that he can still play.

Since injuring his hip during his final year with the Boston Celtics, his stint with the Washington Wizards marked the most number of games that he’s played in a season in three years with 40 – 37 of those as a starter.

Too bad for him, he has yet to get his hands on his new threads but reports have surfaced that the 30-year old scoring dynamo will be waived by the Clippers – just a day before his 31st birthday.

The Celtics fans love Thomas and they appreciate the lift that he’s done for the organization and it is just fitting to bring Thomas back home to the place where he was at his best. He had his best scoring season with Boston by churning in 28.9 points per game in the regular season. Nobody will forget him showing up to the game after learning the death of his sister a day before.

A reunion between the Celtics and Thomas will not just become a feel-good story but after proving in Washington that he still has it, he can provide a huge lift to the Celtics and he is seen as a better option than back-up point guard Brad Wanamaker per Clutchpoints article.

Thomas has been averaging 12.2 points, 3.7 assists, and 1.7 rebounds for the Wizards and certainly, Boston and other teams can make of his double-digit scoring.
