Isiah Thomas Offered the Clippers His Services Pro Bono

by March 27, 2009

How charitable of you, Mr. Thomas: “Thomas is doing what he can to try to get back into the game, and with his daughter set to attend Loyola Marymount, he offered to work for the Clippers without getting paid because he is still receiving money from the Knicks, Dunleavy said. The Clippers were sympathetic to Thomas’ overtures. ‘Isiah came to us,’ Dunleavy said in a telephone interview Thursday morning. ‘I wasn’t going to be a jerk and say, ‘I can’t talk to you.’ But there’s no position in the organization for him.’ Thomas ran into Sterling at a party and apparently pushed for work and asked whether he could sit next to the owner at an upcoming game, according to Dunleavy. That didn’t happen.”
