NBA Reports: Isaiah Thomas headed to the Nuggets

Thomas had been lingering on the free agent market with few known suitors since his contract expired with the Los Angeles Lakers.

Free-agent guard Isaiah Thomas agreed to a one-year, $2 million deal with the Denver Nuggets, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported Thursday.

Entering his eighth National Basketball Association season, Isaiah Thomas apparently will be joining a sixth team.

Chelsea fires manager Antonio Conte after 2 years in charge
Juventus' recent dominance of the Italian top flight was nearly ended by Sarri's swashbuckling Napoli side last season. As he was still in the final year of a three-season contract, Conte is due a £9m payoff which the club will contest.

But this move could be right for Thomas and with the bad luck he's had over the past year, he deserves to get his career back on track in Denver and return to a high level. Appearing in just 17 games for the Lakers as Lonzo Ball's backup, he averaged 15.6 points, 2.1 rebounds, and 5.0 assists in 26.8 minutes.

Before the injury, Thomas had developed into one of the game's elite scoring point guards, averaging 28.9 points in 2016-17 with the Celtics. With L.A., Thomas played slightly better (though he continued struggling with his shooting) and was reportedly a positive influence on the Lakers' younger players.

The one-year, minimum deal is a gamble for Thomas, though one he may have been forced to take.

Wimbledon men's final not moving if England reach World Cup showpiece
The Wimbledon men's singles final will not be moved even if England reach the World Cup final on the same afternoon. Ten years ago, Nadal triumphed over his great rival in a five-set epic which ended at 9.16pm (2016GMT).

Thomas was traded to the Cavaliers last season as a part of the Kyrie Irving deal, but he never fully recovered from an injured hip. But questions remain regarding his long-term health.

According to ESPN, Thomas will have a key role as an off-the-bench scorer.

Thomas likely sees this as a potential bridge season for him to prove that he's healthy and still capable of being the player he was for the Boston Celtics two seasons ago.

Trump readies tariffs on another $US200m of Chinese goods
China gave no details, but it has plenty of options to retaliate that could extend beyond additional tariffs on U.S. imports. Senate Finance Committee Chairman Orrin Hatch called it "reckless", adding that the tariffs were "not a targeted approach".
