Isaiah Thomas is still seeking a route back into the NBA, and he’s trying to show how worthy he is by lighting up opponents on the pro-am circuit.
Thomas put up 81 points on Sunday in Seattle’s “The CrawsOver” pro-am league. In video that emerged from the event, Thomas looked quick and fluid and was knocking down shots from deep.
Obviously, it’s tough to glean much of anything from a brief video, especially against lower-level opposition. Still, anything that gets Thomas some notice can’t hurt his case to play in the NBA again.
There have been some recent rumors linking Thomas to a possible return to one of his former teams. Anybody that could use some bench scoring could probably find some use for the 32-year-old point guard.
