NBA Team Trades Away Over a Third of Its Players

Isaiah Thomas Traded to the Lakers, Cavs Career Ends With LeBron Ignoring His Ass

After shipping off six players in three different trades, it's once again clear that LeBron James has the inside track toward the 2018 NBA Finals.

Cleveland wasn't alone in making moves before the deadline. "You shouldn't make a move just to make a move at the deadline".

Something had to change.

So, the Cavaliers have successfully eradicated everything they could from that trade with the Boston Celtics, and have completely transformed this team.

Guard Isaiah Thomas and forward Channing Frye went to the Los Angeles Lakers in exchange for point guard Jordan Clarkson and forward Larry Nance Jr. This season in only fifteen games for the Cavs, Thomas has averaged 14.7 points per game and has only made 36 percent of his shots. Hill leads all National Basketball Association players by shooting 45.3 percent from behind the arc, and Hood connects on 38.9 percent of the 6.7 threes he averages per game.

James shined in all three games against the Hawks, the last of which was December 12, averaging 25 points, 14 assists and six rebounds. The teams also swapped 2022 second-round picks. He has some glaring weaknesses in his game, but he knows his limitations on offense and provides some much-needed versatility to one of the worst defensive teams in the league. "His most recent blast - a suggestion after Tuesday's loss to Orlando that the Cavs' coaching staff didn't make enough in-game adjustments this season".

Western Conference guard: "I just kept wondering if I was going to get traded next (laughs)".

Drake Gives Over $125000 to Strangers for ''God's Plan'' Music Video
Among the items Drake gifted were baking supplies and, apparently at the rapper's insistence, beer. He told me that he had to run off to shoot the video.

Former player: "The Lakers are the biggest winners, mainly because of what they can do this summer with that cap space".

The one player the Hawks were supposed to trade - Marco Belinelli - didn't go anywhere.

The Cleveland Cavaliers were busy before the trade deadline, revamping their roster with deals that sent highly-touted recent additions, Isaiah Thomas, Dwyane Wade, and Derrick Rose, to new teams. Hill has seen the playoffs with many teams from the Spurs, Pacers and even the Jazz last season. Not only has he not provided the needed scoring punch, Cleveland actually scored 8.3 more points per 100 possessions with IT off the floor than on it.

Since returning in early January from a hip injury that sidelined him three months, Thomas had struggled to fit in with his new team, on the court and off. The numbers speak volume and he now has the worst rating defensively. We have got to take the next step. But one thing is for sure the Cavs got much younger and much better today for now and maybe for the future.

Nance was a boost to the Lakers' defense, improving his team's defensive rating by nearly two points when playing his 22 minutes per game.

Shumpert, who was averaging just 4.4 points and 2.9 rebounds for the Cavs this season, missed Wednesday's game as he continues to deal with plantar fasciitis in his left foot.
