Isaiah Thomas Drawing Substantial Interest In Free Agency

U-Dub's Isaiah Thomas is a hot free agent target this season. Where will he end up?

He may not be a big name like LeBron or Melo, or even a big man like Chris Bosh, but 5'9 guard Isaiah Thomas continues to show he is one of the hotter free agents in the NBA, drawing interest from as many as six teams according to NBA sources.

Reports on Twitter this morning stated the Seattle native was offered a 3-year, $24 million contract from the Detroit Pistons, who desperately need backcourt help. Thomas was also contacted by the Celtics, per BostonHub.com. Boston's interest seems unusual as they have several guards already on their roster, and is fueling rumors that the Celtics may be looking to deal Rajon Rondo.

Thomas played for the Sacramento Kings last season, averaging 20 PPG, 6 APG, 3 RPG and shot 45% from the floor. Given the parameters of  Kyrie Irving's deal with the Cleveland Cavaliers --a 5 year, $90 million max contract -- and the relative dearth of quality free agent point guards in this year's free agent class -- nobody could blame IT for holding out for a better offer than Detroit. We'll see if he gets it.
