Report: Warriors are latest team to show Isaiah Thomas interest

Isaiah Thomas' search for NBA employment reportedly will take him to the Bay Area.

The free-agent point guard is set to work out with the Golden State Warriors next week, HoopsHype's Jorge Sierra and Michael Scotto reported Thursday.

Thomas reportedly worked out for the Dallas Mavericks earlier this month and drew interest from the Lakers in August before Los Angeles reunited with Rajon Rondo.

The Celtics also had reported interest in bringing Thomas back to Boston in early August, but the team's signing of Dennis Schroder seemed to put those rumors to bed.

Thomas would be an interesting fit for Golden State, which could use more point guard depth behind Stephen Curry. Gary Payton II is the only other true point guard on the roster, with backups Jordan Poole and Damion Lee playing more off the ball.

Thomas played just three games for the New Orleans Pelicans in 2020-21 and hasn't played more than 40 games in a season since his breakout campaign for the Celtics in 2016-17. The 32-year-old has been working hard this offseason to prove he's still an NBA-caliber player, though, and turned heads last month by dropping 81 points in a Seattle Pro-Am game.

 

Will the Warriors end Thomas' unemployment and bring him on for an 11th NBA season? That remains to be seen, but his reported workout is further evidence that he's not, in fact, heading to Russia.
