Two-time NBA All-Star and former Boston Celtics fan favorite Isaiah Thomas is reportedly becoming a broadcaster for Overtime Elite, a professional basketball league based in Atlanta. The league recently announced a partnership with Amazon to stream games exclusively on Prime Video.
Thomas, 33, joined Boston at the 2015 NBA trade deadline, and became an instant hit for a rebuilding Celtics team. He most recently played for the Charlotte Hornets, appearing in 17 regular season games last year.
Overtime Elite, or OTE for short, is a six-team league designed to give top prospects a chance to earn a salary as they showcase their skills. Built around 16-to-20-year old players from around the world, OTE’s season runs from November through March. Thomas will begin broadcasting as soon as tonight.
