The chapter Cleveland Cavaliers is finished for Isaiah Thomas again. The last year’s finalist sent him and another player to the Los Angeles Lakers.
Boring deadline day, my ass!
On the last day of this year’s NBA Transferperide, the Cleveland Cavaliers traded Isaiah Thomas, who was brought to Los Angeles Lakers by the Boston Celtics this season.
The team from California will also receive Channing Frye and the Cavs first-round pick in the upcoming draft. In return, Superstar LeBron James Combo-Guard Jordan Clarkson and Forward Larry Nance Jr.
Thomas’ time with the last year’s finalist was not marked from the beginning. Due to a hip injury, the 1.75-meter Point Guard completely missed the start of the season. He celebrated his comeback after a seven-month break on the 2nd day. January. From then on he played 15 games in which he scored an average of 14.7 points.
Recently, there have been repeated inconsistencies between him and James.
After Cleveland’s victory over Minnesota Timberwolves the night before, Thomas had said that he felt comfortable in Cleveland,”I’m tired of being traded. I’m right where I want to be,”said Thomas.
For Thomas it is already the fourth change in seven seasons. Last August he left Celtics as part of the barter business around Kyrie Irving for Cleveland.
But this was not the Cavaliers’ first deal. Without the superstar, of course, there is nothing going on, hardly any other player has more influence on personal decisions, after all, the Cavs want to keep the “King” in summer.
After the Thomas-Trade, the Cavs will receive Rodney Hood (Utah Jazz) and George Hill (Sacramento Kings) in a three-team deal.
Derrick Rose and Jae Crowder leave Ohio for Utah, while the Kings Joe Johnson and Imam Shumpert get their hands on.
And in a third trade Cleveland sends Dwyane Wade back to the Miami Heat for a second round kick.
