Former All-Star guard Isaiah Thomas has landed a new gig, but it's not on an NBA roster.
Marcus Spears announced that Thomas will join the broadcast team for Overtime Elite this season. He'll apparently make his broadcasting debut tonight.
Thomas, 33, should bring plenty of knowledge to the broadcast booth. We're talking about a player with over a decade of NBA experience.
The timing of this announcement is interesting. Thomas was recently linked to Taiwan’s T1 League.
After starting his career with the Sacramento Kings, Thomas had stints with the Phoenix Suns, Boston Celtics, Cleveland Cavaliers, Los Angeles Lakers, Denver Nuggets, New Orleans Pelicans, Dallas Mavericks and Charlotte Hornets.
Injuries have prevented Thomas from sustaining his elite level of play. That doesn't diminish what he accomplished from 2011 to 2017, though.
It's unclear at the moment if Thomas will retire from the NBA or leave the door open for one last opportunity.
