Isaiah Thomas once again referred to his effort to return to the NBA after an one-year absence.
Thomas made it clear his ‘ultimate goal’ is to play in the NBA as soon as possible.
“This allows me to compete against other professionals, represent my country at the same time—which is an honor and a privilege—and ultimately show NBA teams that I’m back to myself and I’m 100 percent healthy. That’s why I chose to come here.
When Team USA brought it to me, it was a no-brainer. My ultimate goal is to play in the NBA as soon as possible,” Thomas told Tim Reynolds of the Associated Press.
Thomas has not played in the NBA since February of 2020. He will represent Team USA in the FIBA AmeriCup this week.
