Isaiah Thomas is finally getting another chance.
The veteran guard soon will make his return to the NBA after signing a 10-day free-agent contract with the Los Angeles Lakers.
The Lakers have five players -- including starting point guard Russell Westbrook -- in the league's COVID-19 protocols, so adding a guard with offensive skill like Thomas to their roster makes sense.
Thomas made headlines Wednesday night when he scored 42 points in the G-League. The Lakers are hoping he can still provide some much-needed offense off the bench in the NBA.
The journey back to the NBA has been a long one for Thomas, who only played in three games last season. He's appeared in just 92 games over the last four years.
Now he has a long-awaited chance to prove himself and rebuild his career.
