Isaiah Thomas is a man who knows what he wants, and he isn’t afraid to share those desires on social media.

The Boston Celtics point guard, who’s interacted with several potential C’s free-agent targets on Twitter this offseason, on Tuesday gave his recruiting pitch to former Sacramento Kings teammate DeMarcus Cousins via Instagram.

Cousins, an All-Star this past season, currently is embroiled in quite the mess out in Sacramento. The 24-year-old center’s relationship with coach George Karl reportedly is so poor that Karl is actively pushing the team to trade him.

The Celtics’ interest in Cousins has long been rumored, and it looks like Thomas would not at all mind reuniting with the big man.
