Isaiah Thomas said that he is "very confident" that he'll get offered a max contract as a free agent next summer. Thomas will make just $6.3 million next season, an incredible value for the Celtics considering he'll likely be among the league's leading scorers once again. "I deserve [the max]," said Thomas. "I put the work in, and you can put me down against any guard in the NBA. My numbers are up there with the best players in the world, and my team is winning." The Celtics can offer approximately $177 million over five years. Considering Kyle Lowry got $100 million over three years, it's unlikely the C's offer Thomas the max.

Isaiah Thomas (hip) said that he "should be ready" for training camp. He opted not to have surgery this offseason and added that he's already started shooting and working on his cardio. "The hip is great," Thomas said. "It’s going well. Rehabbing it, but it’s going well. It’s a real slow rehab process, but it’s getting better and that’s what it’s all about." The Celtics have a lot more firepower after acquiring Gordon Hayward this summer, so Thomas' fantasy value could take a slight hit after posting monster averages of 28.9 points, 5.9 dimes and 3.2 triples last season.

Danny Ainge confirmed on Wednesday that Isaiah Thomas will not require hip surgery this offseason. "Isaiah is making good progress," Ainge said. "He’s out on the court; he’s shooting. He’s full-speed ahead on the stationary bike and working in the swimming pool. He’s progressing nicely." Thomas was forced out of the playoffs after severely aggravating his rip hip injury during Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals, but he's been evaluated by multiple hip specialist since and it sounds like he'll be fine after some rest and relaxation. Thomas probably won't be a first-round talent next season with Gordon Hayward now in Boston, but he should still be able to flirt with top-25 value.

Isaiah Thomas (hip) still hasn't had his appointment to determine if he needs surgery. Based on the reports over the last two months, Thomas is unlikely to need surgery on his hip. On Friday, coach Brad Stevens said Thomas is feeling better, which isn't much of an update. Usually, players opt to have surgery earlier in the offseason to help them get to rehab sooner, so hopefully IT will be ready in October.

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.

Celtics' head coach Brad Stevens said that it's unlikely Isaiah Thomas will require surgery to repair his strained right hip. "Every indication is that he feels good and will be ready to go," said Stevens when asked for an update on Thomas. Thomas is scheduled for another checkup sometime next week, but this shouldn't be anything that impacts his status for the 2017-18 season. In his second full season with the Celtics, Thomas produced first-round value behind averages of 28.9 points, 5.9 dimes and 3.2 triples per contest, so he'll make for a fine early-round selection on draft day.

President Danny Ainge said that Isaiah Thomas (hip) is doing "much better" in his rehab from his hip injury. Ainge said it's still possible Thomas could need surgery. The GM believes he'll have further imaging done on Thomas in mid-to-late July, and then they'll figure out the next step in the treatment process. Thomas is expected to be ready for camp, but Ainge did say the team is "hoping" IT will be ready to roll.
