So who’s up for a good laugh? You? Good – because I have one.

Bob Finnan of The News Herald reports that the Sacramento Kings are offering up point guard Isaiah Thomas in exchange for the Cavaliers #19 draft pick.

Per Finnan:

One unconfirmed rumor that’s surfaced is the Kings offering point guard Isaiah Thomas to the Cavs for the No. 19 pick. He’s only 5-9, but you could do a lot worse as a backup point guard. He averaged 13.9 points and 4.0 assists in 79 games.

I uh, uh, well I don’t even know where to start.

So I’ll just leave it like this.

LOL.

Even if the Kings had desire to move Thomas (which they don’t, by the way), doing so for the #19 pick? There’s a good reason the rumor is “unconfirmed”.

Already lacking in point guard depth, moving Thomas would create an even bigger hole for the Kings. Add in the fact that Thomas is only scheduled to make a paltry $900,000 this coming season and the rumor seems even more laughable.

Moving on…

    I really like Isaiah, but I would like to see Jimmer get a chance to run the team. He has the capability to be a Stephen Curry type of player.

      I agree. The Jimmer naysayers have never seen the real Jimmer. Whatever the chemistry was between Jimmer and Keith Smart was poison to Jimmer. There was a reason–or several of them–that Jimmer was everybody’s All-American and Isaiah Thomas wasn’t.

        Lets see how Jimmer does under a new coach. Stephen actually had and has court vision, Jimmer lacks that. Just saying.
