Isaiah Thomas

Peter Edlund is getting excited about the potential of a return of the Seattle Supersonics to the great Northwest. The potential move of the Sacramento Kings would land a handful of exciting players in Seattle, including DeMarcus Cousins, Isaiah Thomas, Chuck Hayes, Patrick Patterson and Marcus Thornton.

As their record shows, the Sacramento Kings aren’t anywhere close to being a contender yet, but they are just about where are Sonics were when they were stolen from us.
