Lakers Bound: Isaiah Thomas Traded Already, NBA Twitter Is Litty

Hours before the trade deadline expired, the Lakers and the Cavaliers agreed to swap players: Clarkson and Nance for #isaiah thomas, Channing Frye, and the 2018 first round draft pick.

Thomas joined the Cavs during the offseason as part of the blockbuster trade that sent Kyrie Irving to Boston. He averaged just 14.7 ppg and shot just 36.1 percent from the field and 25.3 percent on 3-pointers. With LeBron James potentially declining his contract option this summer and becoming a free agent, the Cavs had to decide whether to make another run at an National Basketball Association championship or begin rebuilding. They got longer and more athletic - Clarkson, Nance, Hill, and Hood are all long, lanky, athletic players who can switch across multiple positions. While Rose and Wade have missed a combined 44 games this season and have a lengthy injury history, Clarkson has played in all but three games over the past three seasons. But if that money does wind up in LeBron's hands after the 2017-18 campaign, Thursday's trade could look like the Cavs enabling the King's westward expansion.

Because of sending their own pick to the Lakers, the Cavaliers are now unable to deal the Brooklyn Nets' unprotected selection in 2018, which is close to being the No. 1 overall choice. Clarkson and Nance Jr. will improve their bench.

On paper, the move makes Cleveland healthier, more athletic and better on defense. One could be used on California native Paul George. "I hope Ty's taking care of himself", he said.

All season they've been looking to create cap space for both this summer and next by making some trades, and they finally pulled it off. "It hasn't been as planned, but I definitely want to be here". "This trade is also a reflection of our continuing commitment to invest in our roster in ways that help us evolve and compete at the highest level now and into the future". Frye, 34, was averaging 4.8 points and 2.5 rebounds in 12.4 minutes per game. Plus, he was involved in some of their off-court drama, and it was likely best to just move him and help clear the air.

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