Isaiah Thomas is part of the three team Clippers-Knicks-Wizards trade, but the veteran NBA point guard reportedly won’t be sticking in Los Angeles.
The former Boston Celtics’ All-Star point guard, who’s moved around quite a bit following his trade to Cleveland, will be searching for another NBA team. The Clippers will reportedly not be keeping Thomas on the roster.
Thomas, 30, was likely included in the deal for monetary purposes. He was included in the trade that brought Marcus Morris to Los Angeles, Mo Harkless to New York and Jerome Robinson to D.C., among other players.
The former Washington Huskies star is averaging 12.2 points and 3.7 assists per game this season.
The Clippers will not be keeping Isaiah Thomas, acquired today from Washington in three-team deal with Knicks that brought Marcus Morris to LA and send Moe Harkless/picks to NYC, per league source.

It would’ve been tough for Thomas to earn minutes in the Clippers’ rotation. Los Angeles has also been linked to retired point guard Darren Collison, who is considering a comeback.
It’s been a tough fall from stardom for Thomas, who played through a brutal injury during his final season in Boston. The veteran point guard is shooting well this season, 41.3 percent of his 3-point attempts, so maybe he can land on another contender.
