The 29-year-old point guard agreed to a one-year deal for the veteran's minimum with the Denver Nuggets Thursday night, a league source confirmed. Prior to the injury, Thomas was eyeing a $100 million max contract extension.
It's with the Nuggets that Thomas will be reunited with ex-Sacramento head coach Mike Malone, and part of a Denver squad that finished with 46 wins a season ago (but finished in ninth place in the Western Conference for the second year in a row).

In 17 games, including just one start, for Los Angeles, Thomas averaged 15.6 points and five assists. He averaged 15.2 points and 4.8 assists, a far cry from his All-Star seasons with the Celtics.
That playoff run ended, however, with a hip injury that lingered well past Boston dealing him to Cleveland in exchange for Kyrie Irving. With the Cavaliers struggling, however, they dealt Thomas, Channing Frye and a 2018 first-round draft pick to the Los Angeles Lakers on February 8 for Jordan Clarkson and Larry Nance Jr. In the playoffs, he had his career-best scoring game just a few weeks after his sister was killed in a auto accident.
