PHOENIX (AP) — Isaiah Thomas says he considers himself a starting point guard in the NBA but he’s willing to sacrifice that to play for a winning team.
Thomas, acquired by the Phoenix Suns in a sign-and-trade deal with Sacramento, spoke at a news conference on Monday.
The Suns employ a double point-guard system and envision a rotation between Goran Dragic, Eric Bledsoe and Thomas.
Coach Jeff Hornacek calls it “a three-headed monster” at guard with two of the three on the court all the time.
The team also introduced newly signed forward Anthony Tolliver.
