Isaiah Thomas shared his thoughts on why he is still a free agent in the NBA.

Thomas, who was waived by the Los Angeles Clippers after the February 6 trade deadline, talked about why he believes he’s not with a team at the current moment.

“I was a throw-in in a trade — I understood that when that happened … I got waived. I started 40 games for the Washington Wizards, but for the most part when I got waived it was trying to find a playoff team to see if the situation was right, I was still waiting … for a good opportunity.

I was playing the waiting game, staying ready, and then all this coronavirus stuff has happened and has shut down everything.

For me, mentally, I just try to stay as positive as I can knowing I can control everything I can possibly control in that situation. … It wasn’t my ability that got me traded and waived, it was a business decision,” Thomas told retired NBA guard Jay Williams on “The Boardroom”.
