Ex-Celtic Isaiah Thomas disputes reports he’s been working out with the Los Angeles Lakers

Rumors of Isaiah Thomas returning to the Los Angeles Lakers may have been greatly exaggerated

Initially, HoopsHype’s Michael Scotto reported the former Boston Celtics point guard had been working out in L.A. in recent days with a number of prospective Lakers in an attempt to latch on with the club for the 2022-23 NBA season.

But IT himself disputed the reporting on Twitter soon after Scotto shared his source’s information that seems to be — at least as far as IT is concerned — incorrect.

“No I didn’t workout for the lakers!!!!” replied Thomas. “What SOURCE told you that?? Smh”.

While a third-string floor general role for IT might make sense for the Lakers if they move on from veteran guard Russell Westbrook after signing fellow former Celtic Dennis Schroder to a deal, if L.A. hangs on to Westbrook for some time, a move for Thomas would make less sense.

And any signing would require IT to work out with the team, most likely, which has evidently not (yet?) happened.
