Returning to Boston as a member of the Denver Nuggets, Isaiah Thomas expressed his love for the Boston Celtics and the city before their matchup.
Thomas added that he reached out to Danny Ainge during free agency last season.
“I know we left on bad terms with me being traded. I wanted them to know that the interest was there. I didn’t know if they were interested, and I wasn’t saying I wanted to come back and be the guy. I was just saying if the opportunity presents itself, just know I’m interested,” said Thomas.
Thomas, a free agent this summer, left the door open for his return.
“You never know. You can’t predict the future. My options are always open for anybody. I’m a Denver Nugget now, but I’m a free agent at the end of the season, and you never know what can happen. Who knows?”
