Isaiah Thomas is still out here vying for an NBA job. He’s been balling out in Pro-Am games, even dropping 80+ points in a single contest. So when Thomas heard about a rumor that he’s taking his talents overseas, the veteran made sure to fire back and clarify that it couldn’t be further from the truth:
No sir not me!!! I will not be going overseas. Wrong isaiah https://t.co/RAw5diCgbZ

Seems a bit confusing based on the report saying that Isaiah Thomas is generating a lot of buzz with CSKA Moscow, one of the better teams in Europe. But, you heard it from the horse’s mouth. He has no plans of giving up his NBA dreams.
Thomas proved in Pro-Am that he can still score at will. In the 81-point performance, he had 40 by halftime and was absolutely electrifying with the rock in his hands. Unfortunately, it hasn’t led to Isaiah Thomas landing another job in the Association, though.
The 32-year-old played three games in 2021 with the New Orleans Pelicans after signing a 10-day contract. He also spent time in the 2019/20 campaign with the Washington Wizards. IT did a workout recently with the Dallas Mavericks and the Los Angeles Lakers are reportedly interested as well.
There are lots of teams throughout the league who could use more guard depth and clearly, Isaiah Thomas is ready for a call. Playing overseas would still be solid, but he is convinced that he can still help out a team in the NBA.
