Isaiah Thomas is heading to the Suns
In a more minor but still important move, Isaiah Thomas appears to be on his way out of Sacramento and on his way to Phoenix. Via Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports:
Suns and Kings are finalizing a sign-and-trade deal on a four-year, $27M contract for Isaiah Thomas, league sources tell Yahoo Sports.
What this tweet doesn’t mention is what the Kings are getting back from this, but odds are good they’ll get something solid in return since Thomas is one of the league’s brightest young point guards. The bigger question here is how does he fit in with Goran Dragic and Eric Bledsoe? Surely the Suns aren’t letting either of them go as a part of this deal, which makes for a very interesting backcourt in Phoenix.
