Lakers Rumors: LA Interested in New Isaiah Thomas Contract Despite Surgery

Lakers Rumors: LA Interested in New Isaiah Thomas Contract Despite Surgery

Isaiah Thomas will not be playing for the rest of the season as the Lakers are already eliminated from the playoff contention. Now with the surgery potentially limiting him further, Thomas' future in LA is even murkier.

LOS ANGELES _ Lakers guard Isaiah Thomas will undergo arthroscopic hip surgery on Thursday at the Hospital for Special Surgery in NY. But what about his Los Angeles Lakers tenure?

Thomas left the Lakers earlier this week to seek a second opinion on his hip injury, and obviously now he has it.

Five Red Sox takes: Chris Sale shines in Opening Day defeat
Boston's Rick Porcello makes his season debut Saturday night for the third of four games against Tampa Bay to start the season. A grease fire broke out at Tropicana Field Thursday, right as the Rays are about to open their 21st season, officials said.

Prior to the trade deadline, L.A. acquired Thomas, Channing Frye and a first-round pick from the Cleveland Cavaliers for Jordan Clarkson and Larry Nance Jr.

In a statement received by ESPN, Dr. Bryan Kelly of the Hospital for Special Surgery in NY said that the minimally invasive procedure is to "clean up the joint of all inflammatory debris related to his injury from last season". Thomas, then with the Celtics, would go on to complete easily the best season of his career, but there were more painful moments, of all sorts, to come. "I mean, what a tough player he is". "He was in here every day doing his thing".

If they're unable to lure those marquee names to Los Angeles, the franchise could potentially explore one-year deals for the 2018-19 season and Isaiah would be at the top of their list if they decide to go down that route, per Wojnarowski. He averaged 15.6 points in 26.8 minutes a game.

Said Brandon Ingram of Thomas: "He's been a really good leader for us".

Thomas is a two-time All-Star selection who will be a free agent this summer.

While it's unclear if Los Angeles would be the team to offer him a short deal for good money, as mentioned above, it wouldn't be a shock to see him sign a one-year contract before the market resets.
