Isiah Thomas shared his thoughts on Victor Oladipo and his potential for the 2020/21 season in the NBA.
Thomas believes Oladipo will have a great season ‘when he is healthy’.
“I think Oladipo is going to have a great year you know, when he’s healthy. I was worried about him when he came back this year because I didn’t think he was healthy enough and you know, as an elder in the league I called him and I texted him and I just said, “I know you’re anxious, but make sure that you’re really healthy because you’ve got a great career ahead of you.
And I hope during this period of time he can fully heal, because when he’s fully healed and healthy he’s one of the best backcourt players in the game,” Thomas, a two-time NBA champion and Hall of Famer, told Brandon “Scoop B” Robinson of Heavy.com.
In 19 regular season games this season, Oladipo averaged 14.5 points, 3.9 rebounds and 2.9 assists. The star of the Indiana Pacers is entering the final year of his contract and has been involved in trade rumors recently.
