Isaiah Thomas has been spending most of his time recently at the end of the Denver Nuggets bench.

That hasn’t stopped speculation about Thomas potentially returning to the Boston Celtics as a free agent this summer.

“You never know,” Thomas said, per Adam Himmelsbach of theBoston Globe. “You can’t predict the future. My options are always open for anybody. I’m a Denver Nugget now, but I’m a free agent at the end of the season, and you never know what can happen. Who knows?”

The Celtics traded Thomas to the Cleveland Cavaliers in July 2017 as part of the deal that brought Kyrie Irving to Boston. At the time, Thomas was coming off a star-making season that saw him become a second-team All-NBA selection.

A hip injury, which was initially suffered during the 2016-17 campaign, has derailed Thomas’ career the last two seasons.
