Brad Stevens, his former coach and now Celtics president of basketball operations, is known to be a huge fan of Thomas.
Thomas had a memorable run in Boston, finishing fifth in the MVP voting in the 2016-17 season, averaging 28.9 points and 5.9 assists per game that campaign.
His most memorable moment in “Beantown” happened in the playoffs, however, as he went off for 53 points against the Wizards in a playoff game on her sister’s birthday, a little over two weeks after she tragically passed away in a single-vehicle accident.
More Celtics Rumors
- The Celtics are making Jeff Green a primary target, according to Adam Himmelsbach of the Boston Globe. The Celtics are focused on adding a player with size, shooting and extensive experience. Green, who averaged 14.6 points per game during his first go-around in Boston, checks all of those boxes.
The Celtics have interest in Spencer Dinwiddie, per Chris Mannix of Sports Illustrated. Boston could trade away Marcus Smart this offseason and point guard depth is an area where the franchise clearly needs to address. Mannix names Patty Mills as another potential free-agent target.
