NBA free agent Isaiah Thomas already knows the path he’ll take once he decides to hang up his sneakers for good.

Fans have yet to see Isaiah Thomas’ skills on the mic, but he may very well follow the footsteps of the recently retired Dwyane Wade who now works as a basketball analyst for TNT.
Coaching, on the other hand, is also a popular choice among retired NBA point guards considering they were the extension of the coaches during their playing days.
Seems like Thomas is also keeping tabs on some retired players who were also lucky enough to get front office positions. General managers Vlade Divac of the Sacramento Kings and Elton Brand of the Philadelphia 76ers first come to mind.
At just 31 years old, Thomas appears to still have plenty of basketball left to play. The diminutive guard has finally been healthy this season, notching 12.2 points and 3.7 assists in 40 appearances for the Washington Wizards prior to the NBA suspension.
However, the 5-foot-9 guard’s stock has certainly taken a dip this year after he was shipped by the Wizards to the Los Angeles Clippers before the trade deadline. He was waived by the Clips shortly and has not been picked up by the other 28 teams since.
The two-time All-Star has already rejected the idea of suiting up overseas and believes he still has a lot to offer for NBA teams.
