"I'm always motivated," Thomas told UPI Sunday. "There aren't particular things that motivate me more. I've always had a chip on my shoulder. I always put my head down and continue to work no matter what the situation may be. I will continue to do that."
Thomas, 30, averaged a career-low 8.1 points per game in 2018-2019 for the Denver Nuggets. The two-time All-Star split the 2017-2018 season with the Cleveland Cavaliers and Los Angeles Lakers. Thomas began his career with the Sacramento Kings.
