The Los Angeles Lakers and Cleveland Cavaliers reportedly agreed to a trade on Thursday hours before the deadline that will send Isaiah Thomas to Los Angeles.

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski‏ broke that news on Twitter.

Experts urge calm during wild ride on Wall Street
Australian shares dropped 3.0 per cent to their lowest level since October while South Korean shares dropped 2.0 per cent. In the Middle East, stocks were touched by the USA and Asian markets' sell-off, though the losses were more limited.

For the Lakers to also receive the Cavs' 2018 first-round pick while moving Clarkson, a player who's contract they were so blatantly trying to get rid of, is nothing short of miraculous. That being said, it feels a lot like this move was done in order to prepare for something beyond just this season, reinforcing their young core to go along with that Nets pick. And yes, it's protected.

Clarkson averages 14.5 points per game on 45-percent shooting. He hasn't looked all that good since returning from injury. Thomas and James just couldn't share the ball together the same way James had with Irving. The Cavaliers are in a rough place right now. Wade played 13 seasons in Miami, winning three National Basketball Association titles - two of them with LeBron James.

In truth, it seems like a pretty solid move. Isaiah Thomas told SportsCenter past year the story of how he got his name, which speaks to the volumes of his father's love for the Lakers. Does this improve their playoff chances? The trade makes the Cavs better, but the trade is equal for both sides because they both gave away great assets.

Winter Weather Advisory Issued from 4 pm to Midnight Monday
The snow arrived a little later than expected, too, starting in Portland around noon and in the Bangor area around 2 p.m. Forecasters there said that while a few strong wind gusts are possible, winds will likely stay below severe limits.

Nance Jr., son of Cleveland Cavaliers legend Larry Nance, is averaging 8.6 points, 6.8 rebounds, 1.4 assists, 1.5 steals and 0.5 blocks in 22.0 minutes per game.

In my opinion, he should assume a similar role Clarkson held before he was included in today's trade, at least once Lonzo Ball comes back.

Nance is averaging 6.9 points, 5.7 rebounds, 1.2 assists and 1.2 steals per game over his 168-game National Basketball Association career. He turns 26 in June.

Oklahoma City Thunder's Russell Westbrook, Carmelo Anthony questionable against Lakers
With the trade deadline fast approaching, the Warriors have a bit of a decision to make. "When I first got there, it was surreal". Despite what the Lakers have said over the last few days, if George comes knocking at their door they're going to open it up.

The key to standing pat has been the development Clarkson and Randle have shown this season.
