MANILA, Philippines – After a few days of inaction, the NBA free agent market is suddenly back in full swing.

Former Los Angeles Lakers guard Isaiah Thomas has signed a one-year $2.3 million deal with the Denver Nuggets, per ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Minutes later, the ESPN insider announced a deal sending “Linsanity” Jeremy Lin and a future second-round pick to the Atlanta Hawks for their own second-round pick.

The Hawks will absorb Lin’s $12.5 million expiring deal and use him as a backup point guard to Dennis Schroder.

Meanwhile, Brooklyn will in turn absorb the deals of Denver’s Darrell Arthur and the “Manimal” Kenneth Faried in exchange for reserve point guard Isaiah Whitehead, whom the Nuggets will immediately waive.

The 5-foot-9 Thomas was one of the last big-name free agents on the market after the signings of the likes of LeBron James, Kevin Durant, DeMarcus Cousins, Rajon Rondo and Dwight Howard.

Oklahoma City forward Carmelo Anthony has yet to be dealt after the Thunder announced their desire to part ways with the former All-Star’s $27 million deal. – Rappler.com
