Isaiah Thomas Willing To Wait For Extension To Help Boston In Free Agency
Isaiah Thomas is eligible for a contract extension with the Boston Celtics this offseason, but he's okay waiting for free agency if he can help the team improve their roster.
Thomas is set to enter the final year of a four-year, $27 million contract he signed with the Phoenix Suns in 2014.
Thomas is scheduled to make just $6.3 million during the 17-18 season, be a salary less than what the Celtics will pay the No. 1 overall pick ($7 million at 120 percent of the rookie scale).
Thomas has been active in recruiting talent to the Celtics.
"We need the best possible player that's gonna help us win, and I'm with that," Thomas said. "Anything Danny and this organization need me to do to help bring even more talent to this city, I'm all for that. I want to win a championship and being so close to getting to the Finals, that makes you want it that much more.
"I'm all help if they need it. I'll be around."
In the past, Thomas has said the Celtics need to "bring out the Brink's truck" to re-sign him.
