After former teammate DeMarcus Cousins' name swirled in the rumor mill on Tuesday with reports that coach George Karl desired to trade him, Thomas utilized his new Instagram account to pitch Boston as a potential landing spot.
Writing from Isaiah4Thomas, Thomas commented on Cousins' photo, "If they don't want u. i know who does lol."

Earlier this month, Thomas used Twitter to subtly recruit the trio of LaMarcus Aldridge, Marc Gasol and Kevin Love. On June 20, he asked his Twitter followers for help picking a new Instagram username and promoted the Isaiah4Thomas account that left the message on Cousins' photo.
Cousins himself posted a photo of Thomas with the caption, "Follow the family he finally got a IG @isaiah4thomas" earlier this week. That, of course, prompted Celtics fans to fill the comments with pleas to join Thomas in Boston.
