Isaiah Thomas told Celtics he’d love to come back

The last 12 months haven’t been kind to Isaiah Thomas, so the point guard attempted to return to where he was having success before then.

According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the former Boston Celtics guard reached out to general manager Danny Ainge and spoke for 15-20 minutes.

“If the opportunity is there, I would just like to let you know that I’d love to come back.”

Wojnarowski notes that Ainge was open to the move, but Boston needed to re-sign restricted free agent Marcus Smart first. In the meantime, Thomas elected to join the Denver Nuggets.

So, a reunion didn’t happen this summer.

But if, as Thomas says, he truly doesn’t hold a grudge, a successful season in Denver could create more opportunities next July. Depending on what happens with Kyrie Irving, perhaps there’s a chance Thomas does go back.

That sure would add another intriguing chapter to Thomas’ NBA story.
