NBA Rumors: Isaiah Thomas To Fire His Agent Ahead Of Free-Agency Season


Isaiah Thomas seeks fresh eyes to help make his next move his best move.

The Cleveland Cavaliers guard is parting ways with his current agent and is in the process of recruiting a new one ahead of the final season of his existing contract, ESPN’s Chris Haynes reported Wednesday on Twitter, citing sources.

Thomas, whom the Cavs acquired last month from the Boston Celtics via trade, can become a free agent after the 2017-18 season.

He’s set to earn just $6.2 million next season under terms of his existing deal, which he signed with the Phoenix Suns in 2014. After scoring 28.9 points per game last season while leading the Celtics to the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference, he now wants a max contract and apparently believes new representation will help convince interested teams to give him just that.
