Denver Nuggets guard Isaiah Thomas believes that he has nothing to prove other than staying healthy.

Thomas believes he has nothing to prove, despite the slow movement in his free agency.

“Nah,” Thomas said, according to Tim Bontemps of The Washington Post during USA Basketball’s minicamp in Las Vegas.
