Cavs trade Thomas, Frye

  • Magic Johnson confident Lakers will lure big names

Right in the middle of deadline day, the Cavaliers struck a deal with the Los Angeles Lakers to send Isaiah Thomas, Channing Frye and their 2018 first-round pick to LA in exchange for Jordan Clarkson and Larry Nance Jr. In those 15 games this season he is averaging 14.7 points and 4.5 assist per night.

The blockbuster deal was first reported three hours before the NBA's trade deadline, and kickstarted a flurry of activity that saw the Cavs completely overhaul their roster in hopes of winning another championship before LeBron James becomes a free agent in July. James, a Los Angeles native, made a bet with his friend that his beloved Lakers would beat the Detroit Pistons in the 1989 NBA Finals, or he'd name his son after the Piston's iconic player, Isiah Thomas.

Additionally, if Thomas can find himself and return to near the level that he was at last season, Los Angeles will have received one of the most lethal scoring threats in the league. Losing Thomas may sting a bit due to the fact he was the main takeaway from the summer Kyrie Irving trade, but kudos to general manager Koby Altman for jettisoning the diminutive guard before things deteriorated even further.

Neither U.S. officials nor the U.S. -backed coalition have offered details on the identity of attacking forces. After the attack the coalition "conducted strikes against attacking forces to repel the act of aggression".

In addition to players, the Lakers will also get the Cavaliers' protected first-round pick in 2018. The third-year forward was traded from the Lakers, alongside Jordan Clarkson, to Cleveland.

But that progress, while significant, is only one piece of the Lakers' puzzle.

"They've still got LeBron James". He said he liked being in Cleveland and believes in the team.

"It will definitely be nice to have them around more", Pete Nance said Thursday afternoon before his high school practice.

Clarkson is averaging 14.5 PPG on the year and is instant offense off the bench. Thomas obviously wanted to stay and make a run for a National Basketball Association championship in Cleveland, but the team wants to move on from IT and pick up younger players with longer contracts to try and advance to another finals appearance. "Obviously, I only want the best for the city for sure".

Thomas' agent insists going to the Staples Center will be a good opportunity for the point guard, but Lakers president Johnson reckons he will have to get used to being second choice behind Lonzo Ball. Meanwhile, Channing Frye led the Cavaliers in terms of 3-point shooting percentage last season, barging in the Top 20 placing 17th behind Stephen Curry and Chris Paul (tied for 16th spot). 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.
