Cavs send Isaiah Thomas to Lakers

Cavs send Isaiah Thomas to Lakers

Aside from salary flotsam-which, essentially, is all the Cavs gave up in these deals given how little Shumpert, Frye and Rose were playing-Crowder and Thomas were the only rotation pieces given up in these two deals. Hopefully the Los Angeles Lakers stay out of the National Basketball Association trade deadline activity. Isaiah Thomas told SportsCenter previous year the story of how he got his name, which speaks to the volumes of his father's love for the Lakers. This season in only fifteen games for the Cavs, Thomas has averaged 14.7 points per game and has only made 36 percent of his shots. Better yet, should the Lakers still try to march past the regular season now that they have the #Cleveland Cavaliers' 2018 first round draft pick?

Following the win, Thomas expressed his desire not to get traded again.

Thomas joined the Cavs during the offseason as part of the blockbuster trade that sent Kyrie Irving to Boston.

Alabama notebook: Saban uses National Football League connection to land top CB
The six-foot 180-pound corner is the fourth corner in Alabama's class and is the 15th member of the 2018 class . ESPN ranked Alabama's class sixth nationally, while 247Sports and Rivals ranked it seventh.

In the first big move of deadline day, the Lakers traded Jordan Clarkson and Larry Nance Jr.to the Cavs for Isaiah Thomas, Channing Frye and Cleveland's own 2018 first-round pick.

Both Frye and Thomas have expiring contracts worth a combined $13.68 million, which provides the Lakers with additional financial flexibility.

"I don't want to be traded" were the words that came out of Isaiah Thomas' mouth after the Cavaliers' exciting victory over the Timberwolves Wednesday night.

Milwaukee acquires Tyler Zeller from Nets for Rashad Vaughn, future 2nd-rounder
Zeller provides the Bucks valuable playoff experience as his previous two stops were with Boston Celtics and Cleveland Cavaliers. The third-year center has averaged 5.9 points and 2.9 rebounds since arriving from the Philadelphia 76ers.

With those other moves in perspective, it's a lot easier to see where Clarkson and Nance Jr. fit in the Cleveland Cavaliers' new rotation.

Thomas has played for the Sacramento Kings, Phoenix Suns, Boston Celtics and Cavaliers. The two-time All-Star averaged 14.7 points, but Cleveland went 7-8 in those games. Clarkson is a lifetime 44.2 percent shooter from the field and 33.2 percent from three-point range. Who knows how long it could take for him to start getting back to the way he played a year ago.

Reports were that the market for Clarkson was tepid and that the Lakers were going to have to attach one of their young players to him in order to make a trade.
