Wizards’ Isaiah Thomas’ trainer knows opportunity with Washington is ‘big’ for Thomas
Washington Wizards point guard Isaiah Thomas’ trainer, Andre Brown, knows next season is a “big” one for Thomas.
Thomas has a chance to revive his NBA career since he’s going to be getting a lot of minutes with the Wizards. Washington will either start Thomas or have him be the backup point guard to Ish Smith. Wizards All-Star guard John Wall is expected to miss the entire 2019-20 season recovering from his Achilles injury.
“This opportunity is going to be big for him, to shock the world,” Brown told NBC Sports Washington’s Chase Hughes. “I just want everyone to pay attention and open [their] eyes and know that it’s time.
“I’ve seen him be able to do more things as far as taking off and being able to run and feel comfortable. Now he’s able to get to all of his spots on the floor and elevate to where his shot needs to be. It’s a fluid motion. Once Isaiah gets to his spots, he’s tough.”
With the Wizards, Thomas will have the ball in his hands a good amount, especially if head coach Scott Brooks brings him off the bench. Let’s see if Thomas can get back to his All-Star form with the Wizards. It would be a great story if he did.
