PBT Extra: Isaiah Thomas’ hip surgery will limit his free agency options this summer

1 Comment

It’s very easy and tempting to play the “what if” game with the news Isaiah Thomas is going in for surgery on the torn labrum in his hip that has bothered him since last summer.

However, the reality for Thomas is getting the surgery now is going to impact his options on the free agent market now — some teams are going to shy away. We may well see a situation where Thomas takes a one year (or one+one) contract to prove his value, then hit the market in 2019 where there should be more teams with money to spend.

I get into all of it in this latest PBT Extra.
