Isaiah Thomas isn't interested in re-signing with the Celtics on a discount next summer.
"I'm a max [contract] guy, so I deserve the max," Thomas said. "They know they've got to bring the Brinks truck out." Thomas has one year left of his four-year, $27 million deal, so he was one of the most underpaid stars in the league and it's understandable that he wants to cash in. The Celtics already have two max contract players in Gordon Hayward and Al Horford, so they gave Avery Bradley away for cheap because of Thomas' upcoming free agency. Thomas envisions himself in Boston for the foreseeable future and said he wants to bring home a championship, so he sounds confident that the Celtics will give him a max deal.
