#PSBSportsChop: What Happened to Isaiah Thomas? – February 8, 2018
Last year, Isaiah Thomas averaged 29.8 points per game en route to leading Boston to the best record in the Eastern Conference. Fast forward nine months and Thomas has struggled to make his new home in Cleveland a good fit. A lingering hip injury, dip in field goal percentage after his return and recent comments about the Cavs coaching staff all resulted in the seven-year veteran being sent to Los Angeles in a trade with the primary guard swapped is Jordan Clarkson.

How bad has Thomas value plummeted in the past six months? Clarkson is actually averaging less points per game this year than Thomas is even after missing all but 15 games so far. Longtime Laker fans Norris Grant and Sean “Sticks” Smith were upset in a group message I’m in about the Thomas addition to the roster after the trade broke earlier this afternoon. For an impending free agent, Thomas is in arguably the most unique situation in league history for a guy coming off of the season he had in 2016-17. Once again, Boston GM Danny Ainge is sitting behind his desk as a winner with Kyrie Irving wearing Celtic green and Thomas being traded yet again.
