Mavericks Make Decision With Isaiah Thomas

When Isaiah Thomas' 10-day contract expires with the Dallas Mavericks, the team is not going to bring back the 32-year-old guard. 

Thomas only appeared in one game with the Mavericks because he, unfortunately, ended up in health and safety protocols. In 13 minutes of action, he had six points and four assists. Overall, it wasn't a bad showing for the veteran, but he sadly wasn't able to play more for them. Thus, it isn't surprising to see Dallas make this decision. 

Thomas previously was on a 10-day contract with the Los Angeles Lakers this season. In four games with them, he averaged 9.3 points, 2.0 rebounds, and 1.5 assists. Overall, he didn't do too badly there either, but the Lakers opted to move on. 

In 533 career games between the Sacramento Kings, Phoenix Suns, Boston Celtics, Cleveland Cavaliers, Lakers, Denver Nuggets, Washington Wizards, New Orleans Pelicans, and Mavericks, Thomas has averaged 18.0 points, 2.4 rebounds, and 4.9 assists. With this vast amount of experience, one has to wonder if another team will be willing to give him a chance on a 10-day. The Celtics could use a jolt and he was at his best with them. Perhaps a reunion could be in the works. 

Alas, it's a shame Thomas is once again a free agent. It's hard not to root for the 5-foot-9 veteran.
