Thomas played 40 games for the Wizards, averaging 12.2 points and 3.7 assists in 23 minutes a game. Those stats are far from the heights of his Boston days and he hasn’t been able to regain his pre-injury quickness, but he’s still a crafty scorer that can heat up quickly.
The Celtics were looking for veteran shooters and Thomas is hitting 41.3% of his 3 pointers this season. He also knows the system, coach, and several of the players. He’s always been a cheerful but determined character who would likely fit in just fine in this locker room.
Even if it was just for a bench role and a feel good story, I think the Celtics should bring Isaiah Thomas back. It would mean letting go of one of our roster players to open up a spot, but I think it would be a lot of fun.
Could it be IT time again?
