Last month the Golden State Warriors worked out free agent guards Isaiah Thomas, Avery Bradley, ex-Warriors guard Quinn Cook, and other players, according to The Undefeated’s Marc J. Spears.

Also, according to Spears, the Warriors would like to sign a big man and two guards.

According to Shams Charania of The Athletic, the Warriors elected to sign Avery Bradley after the workout.

They also added guard Langston Galloway on a training camp agreement, Charania said.

Despite having a strong workout week with the team, according to Anthony Slater of The Athletic, Isaiah Thomas left San Francisco without a contract.

He would later take to Twitter and voice his frustration before deleting his account altogether.

No matter what, you control your energy; keep that shit on a 10!!!!

Earlier this week, Jamal Crawford Hoop Spaces on Twitter Spaces shared that teams should consider bringing more veterans to mentor the younger players.

“To see a guy like Isaiah Thomas, who has done all these workouts this summer and destroyed Pro-Ams to show that he is healthy. How can a guy like that not even get a look where a team will say, we will bring you into camp. Or say, you are not going to play here a lot, but you can be a great mentor for some of these young guys starting their careers, said Crawford.

“We all know the league is a lot younger; why not have a vet, who these guys look up to, and they look up Isaiah Thomas and other guys throughout the league right now—learning from these guys while on the bench is different from hearing it from an assistant coach. Whether that coach played or not because they are in the trenches with them running the same set of lines.”

Last season, Thomas signed a ten-day contract with the Pelicans, but his contract was not renewed.
