What the Isaiah Thomas trade means for the Cleveland Cavaliers

According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, the Cavs decided they've seen enough of Isaiah Thomas and shipped him off to the Los Angeles Lakers along with Channing Frye and a protected first-round pick. This is important to note, as it now means Cleveland can't trade the 2018 Brooklyn Nets first round pick they acquired from the Celtics in the Thomas trade, without acquiring an additional 2018 first round pick.

Moments after reportedly being traded to the Los Angeles Lakers, Channing Frye shared a final farewell with Cleveland Cavaliers fans - as only he can. Thomas can give them quality point guard play and something to watch until Lonzo Ball returns from knee soreness. Thomas may have been the King of the North when he was with Boston, but he looked more like Robb Stark and less like Jon Snow with Cleveland.

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.

Clarkson is owed $26 million over the next two seasons and Nance, who was drafted 27th overall in 2015, has one year remaining on his rookie contract at just $2.2 million.

It's nearly impossible for him to get less run than he had been in NY , so any extra minutes for him will constitute a win. Willy Hernangomez is a solid young player with good potential and definitely won't hurt the Hornets' salary cap.


Now Google might make a game console and game-streaming service
Google has started and cancelled gaming projects in the past, and right now there's no telling if this ever sees a release. The company has tested several versions of the tech so far and is said to be targeting "top tier" gaming developers.


With the arrival of Nance Jr., the Cavs now have a player who could replace Tristan Thompson in the starting lineup and still be a defensive menace.

Clarkson is averaging 14.5 PPG on the year and is instant offense off the bench. The Huskies won a regular season Pacific-10 Conference title and two Pac-10 Tournament titles with Thomas. Past year on the Celtics, Thomas averaged 28.9 points per game while making 46 percent of his shots.

Cleveland dealt away six players.

The shooting percentages are the worst single-season showings of Thomas' career, and his turnover average is his second-highest ever. Better yet, should the Lakers still try to march past the regular season now that they have the #Cleveland Cavaliers' 2018 first round draft pick?

At just 5-foot-9, Thomas was impressively the NBA's top slasher, leading the league in points per game on drives (9.5).
