Cavs' Actual Return for Kyrie Irving Revealed After Isaiah Thomas, Other Trades

Clarkson and Larry Nance Jr. will be traded to the Cleveland Cavaliers, according to a report from Adrian Wojnarowski. Thomas was traded to the Cavs in the summer in a blockbuster move that sent Kyrie Irving to the Celtics.

The Cleveland Cavaliers only got a glimpse of what Isaiah Thomas was capable of, but it was not enough for the Cavs to retain him.

Here's a quick breakdown: Isaiah Thomas and Channing Frye to the Lakers, Jae Crowder and Derrick Rose to the Jazz, Iman Shumpert to the Kings, and Dwyane Wade to the Heat.

The Cavaliers are making more than just a splash before the trade deadline - they're making a tsunami.

IT averaged 22.0 FanDuel points in 15 games (14 starts) for the Cavaliers, with 14.7 points, 2.1 rebounds, 4.5 assists, 0.6 steals, and 1.5 3-pointers per game.

ESPN's Brian Windhorst notes that with Cleveland taking on long-term money and helping clear cap space, they are wagering that LeBron James decides to stay with the team when he opts out of his contract and becomes a free agent this off-season. He had been the Lakers' sixth man, providing instant offense off the bench for much of the season. This will allow the Lakers to potentially make a run at LeBron James over this summer or possibly another big time free agent. He averaged just 14.7 points in those games.

A two-time all-star, Thomas has also proven himself capable of running offenses himself, both when Ball sits and with him on the floor.

Nance said he was ready for whatever the trade deadline brought. "There is nothing we can do about it".

Frye, a member of the 2016 NBA Championship team and fan favorite, thanks Cavs fans in a video on Instagram. "So you put your head down, play hard, play for us". "And me worrying about it isn't going to change anything or make a difference".

Cleveland completely changed its look - and perhaps its chances of winning an National Basketball Association title this season - on Friday (AEDT) with a stunning sequence of trades before the deadline, a person with direct knowledge of the deals told The Associated Press. The Cavaliers are 31-22, and now sit third in the Eastern Conference.
