Thomas can reportedly suit up on Monday (PHT) against the Rockets.

Free agent guard Isaiah Thomas intends to sign a 10-day contract with the New Orleans Pelicans, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic and Andrew Lopez of ESPN.

Thomas, 32, last played on Feb. 3, 2020 as a member of the Washington Wizards. The veteran guard was traded three days later to the LA Clippers, who then waived him.

Thomas suited up for a pair of FIBA AmeriCup qualifying games for USA Basketball in February, recording a team-high 14.0 points and 2.5 assists per game, while shooting 43.5% from the field and 50.0% from long range.

The two-time All-Star is eligible to make his Pelicans debut on Sunday against the Houston Rockets, according to Charania. The guard position in New Orleans is comprised of Lonzo Ball, Nickeil Alexander-Walker, Kira Lewis Jr., Eric Bledsoe and Josh Hart.

In nine career seasons, Thomas has averaged 18.1 points and five assists per game.
