Isaiah Thomas explains why he chose the G-League and not the EuroLeague to return to the NBA

Former NBA All-Star Isaiah Thomas is attempting a return to the NBA court after being absent since the 2021-22 season. Isaiah Thomas is playing with the Utah Jazz’s G-League affiliates, the Salt Lake City Stars, and has been impressive in his debut. During a recent appearance on the NBA’s FanDuel, “Run It Back”, Thomas talked about why he chose the G-League as his preferred destination to attempt a return to the NBA.

“I’m just fighting for an opportunity, just trying to prove to teams that I can still produce on the court.” Thomas said. “But most of all, I’m able to teach these young kids and show them every day how to be a professional and the things they miss. Abroad is really great, I see those games, I love the game of basketball, but at this point in my life, with my family and children, it would be really hard to go abroad.”.

Isaiah Thomas also stated that playing in the G-League with the Jazz affiliate is the quickest way to join a playoff team and be able to stay on the roster until the end of the season.
