HoopsHype Isaiah Thomas rumors

July 23, 2014 Updates

Yet, the Kings seemed to look for someone to replace Thomas at every opportunity. "They were," he said matter-of-factly. "I felt very disrespected. Every year it was somebody new. I felt I did a good enough job to show them I was a starting point guard or a guy who could play a big role with their team. But they thought differently. They're going to go forward without me, and I'm going to go forward with the Phoenix Suns, and I know something special is coming here." Arizona Republic

If Dragic, Bledsoe and Thomas all are available, Hornacek can keep two fresh, starting playmakers in the backcourt at all times. He called it a "three-headed monster." "Why not?" Hornacek said. The always-effervescent Thomas brightened even more at the suggestion. "I think it would work," he said. "We're totally three different basketball players. We could come at guys from three different directions. It's going to be tough for teams to guard us." Can the Suns contend for titles this way? Conventional thinking says no. But the Suns aren't thinking conventionally these days. Arizona Republic

The Phoenix Suns completed a sign-and-trade deal with the Sacramento Kings that will send guard Isaiah Thomas to Phoenix in exchange for the rights to forward Alex Oriakhi, the club announced today. “We welcome Isaiah Thomas,” said President of Basketball Operations Lon Babby. “His addition to our backcourt makes it one of the deepest and most dynamic in the league. We have enjoyed getting to know him during his visit to Phoenix this week. He will quickly become a fan-favorite.” NBA.com
