The two-time All-Star guard has agreed to a one-year, $2 million deal with the Denver Nuggets, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported Thursday night.

Thomas will earn $2 million, according to Wojnarowski. The last man picked in the 2011 National Basketball Association draft played for Malone in Sacramento during the 2013-14 season and averaged 20.3 points and 6.3 assists as the Kings went 28-54. Denver's head coach, Mike Malone, envisions using Thomas to build on leads established by the team's young core, headlined by Jamal Murray, Gary Harris and Nikola Jokic. He averaged 20.3 points and a career-high 6.3 assists with the Kings that season.

Congress to Trump: Cancel Putin summit after new Mueller indictments
Trump said he did not think Russian Federation would have invaded Crimea if he had been in the White House at the time. All patriotic Americans should understand that Putin is not America's friend, and he is not the President's buddy.


That playoff run ended, however, with a hip injury that lingered well past Boston dealing him to Cleveland in exchange for Kyrie Irving. "So I deserve the max", Thomas told NBC Sports Boston last July (prior to his eventual trade to the Cavaliers, of course). It was only two seasons ago when Thomas was a legitimate MVP candidate, averaging a tick under 30 points per game for the top-seeded Celtics in the 2016-17 season.

Wade and Thomas were both with the Cleveland Cavaliers for a short time last season before being traded. The Cavs soon shipped him to the Lakers, where he played 17 games before getting arthroscopic surgery on his right hip in April.
