"I wouldn't have made the move if I wasn't confident", Johnson said Thursday at the team's facility after acquiring Thomas, Channing Frye and a protected 2018 first-round pick from Cleveland. After being doubted by many, coming into the league with the 60th overall pick in the 2011 National Basketball Association draft, Isaiah didn't find himself and was traded around a few teams. "We need somebody to come in there and lead our troops". FoS covers all things Cleveland for the FanSided brand.
Tuesday's trade brings the Jazz Jae Crowder, who had looked lost and dispirited in Cleveland this season, but should be put in better positions to succeed by Quin Snyder. The Isaiah Thomas experience was short lived. Why or why not?
The Cavaliers and Lebron James also said good-bye to Wade after sending the latter back to the Miami Heat in exchange for the 2024 second-round pick. Hart will still be on the roster, too, as will the player they draft this summer with the Cleveland pick and the player they draft with their own pick in 2019.
Frye, 34, hit 2-of-9 shots and went 0-for-6 from long range in Wednesday's victory. Clarkson can help Cleveland off the bench and Nance is the exactly the sort of rangy athlete who could become twice as valuable next to LeBron, so that's good. I look forward to getting them here. It's not a coincidence. Cleveland opted for a full-scale reboot (80% of the roster!) centered on extending Lebron's window and the Clippers shed a potential albatross and committed to the future.

The Los Angeles Lakers aren't good yet. After a drama-filled Cavaliers locker room the past few weeks, it was increasingly becoming a certainty that James was going to leave Cleveland if something wasn't done. Lakers forward Julius Randle was the one riddled with trade rumors, but looks like LA chose to keep 23-year-old cager.
