Thomas, Magic never negotiated deal

The Orlando Magic and free agent point guard Isaiah Thomas never negotiated a contract, according to the Orlando Sentinel.

The Magic explored the possibility of signing Thomas, but there were no negotiations.

Orlando acquired Jerian Grant from the Chicago Bulls, indicating the franchise has decided to not pursue Thomas.

With the Cleveland Cavaliers and Los Angeles Lakers this past season, Thomas averaged 15.2 points, 2.1 rebounds and 4.8 assists, shooting 37.3 percent from the field and 29.3 percent from three.

Thomas underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right hip on March 28.
