Isaiah Thomas Returns to the Lakers After Dominant G League Stint

Isaiah Thomas has signed a 10-day contract with the Los Angeles Laker, according to reports from NBA insider Shams Charania, making her return to the league for the first time in three games with the New Orleans Pelicans.

The Lakers decided to sign IT after the former All-Star scored 42 points on his G-League debut with the Grand Rapid Golds. The franchise is missing several players (Russell Westbrook, Dwight Howard, Talen Horton-Tucker, Avery Bradley, and Malik Monk) due to health and safety protocols. Since the Lakers are understaffed with these absences, the league granted them a hardship release with which they signed Thomas.

But Thomas came to his strengths at the Boston Celtics, where he averaged 28.9 points per game and competed in two All-Star campaigns before a hip injury turned his fortune on. He has since played for the Cavaliers, Lakers, Nuggets, Wizards, Pelicans and Lakers again.
