Lakers acquire Isaiah Thomas from Cavs

  • Isaiah Thomas

The Eastern Conference has been the playground of the Cleveland Cavaliers since the return of LeBron James in 2014.

Trevor Booker, Philadelphia 76ers: "I think the biggest victor of the deadline is Cleveland". Playing well for the Cavs, who have an opportunity to make another run to the NBA Finals with this roster, would set him up nicely for restricted free agency in the offseason.

The post Cavs rumors: LeBron James reinvigorated vs. Timberwolves due to trade talks appeared first on Cavs Nation.

Thomas reflected on his short time of just 15 games in Cleveland by saying in a tweet after he was traded: "It was only 15 games, but still an experience that I'm grateful for".

On Thursday morning, guards Isaiah Thomas, Dwayne Wade and Derrick Rose and forward Jae Crowder were members of the Cavaliers. Smith has made at least three 3-pointers in five of his last seven games.

Tom Brady aiming for rare double: regular season MVP, Super Bowl MVP
Brady is now a three-time victor (with prior awards in 2007 and 2010) and, at age 40, is the oldest player to ever be named MVP . On Thursday, tight end Rob Gronkowski, who suffered a concussion against the Jaguars, confirmed he will play in the Super Bowl .

Jordan Clarkson is one of the best reserve scorers in the league. Getting a change of scenery might be a good thing for Thomas, as he never seemed to find any groove with the Cavaliers. I don't know. We'll see.

For Frye, he likely won't play a ton for the Lakers, as they will likely use him occasionally off the bench.

They could sign two players this summer, or sign one this summer and wait until 2019 to sign another.

Thomas was traded to Cleveland by the Boston Celtics in August, as part of the shocking Kyrie Irving trade.

Saying things haven't gone as planned for Thomas is an understatement. Be the Kyrie-lite, if you will. Thomas has not even come close. In fact, LeBron's dream team wasn't doing so well this season. He is not scoring too many points this season but has some solid ball-handling skills.

After all, the shrimp and crab already had emojis, as did other sea creatures like the squid, octopus, dolphin, shark and whale. Lobster lovers like King had felt a pinch of resentment that their favorite crustacean was without representation.

Neds have kept Golden State as the raging favourites to win the National Basketball Association title at $1.50, with the Cavs and the Houston Rockets in second at $7.50. The numbers speak volume and he now has the worst rating defensively.

"It is what it is, so let's get it going", he said Friday following the team's shootaround in Atlanta.

"The oft-criticised old, exhausted roster that lacked athleticism to compete with other title contenders, one that got decimated in transition nightly, now boasts unique size, youth, athleticism, length, and versatility". Nance gives them another athletic big to pair with Tristan Thompson (or DeAndre Jordan) to get after rebounds, play defense and provide some mid-range shooting that they lost with Kevin Love's injury.

Hill averaged 10.3 points and 2.8 points a game in 43 games with the Kings this season.

Nance, at 6-foot-9, 230 pounds, is a small-ball big man who offers Cleveland much-needed energy. The Cavs tried to incorporate him into their offense, but it was forced and bogging them down. But he's a defensive liability on a defensively challenged team and the Cavs felt it was best to move him.
