Report: Phoenix Suns visiting with Isaiah Thomas Thursday
That includes the Phoenix Suns, who went all in on the LeBron James sweepstakes, only to be rebuffed (at least we think) by the King and his entourage.
NBA insider Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports says the Suns are entertaining another player who is technically on the market.

Thomas, 25, is coming off his best NBA season, averaging 20.3 points and 6.3 assists in 72 games for the Sacramento Kings. The former University of Washington star is a restricted free agent, but isn't expected to be brought back by Sacramento, which has agreed on terms with free agent point guard Darren Collison.
Should the visit turn into a free agent signing, the Suns would have unprecedented depth at the point guard position, unless they don't plan to match any offers made to their own restricted free agent, Eric Bledsoe, or trade Third Team All-NBA selection Goran Dragic.
The Suns also selected Tyler Ennis out of Syracuse with the 18th overall pick in last month's NBA Draft.
Detroit, Miami and the Los Angeles Lakers are also reported to be interested in Thomas.
Thomas' girlfriend, Kayla Wallace, tweeted the pictures below during their visit with the Suns.
