With just a few hours remaining until the 2018 National Basketball Association trade deadline, L.A. has made a deal that will allow them to add two max salary players in the summer.
Hours before the trade deadline expired, the Lakers and the Cavaliers agreed to swap players: Clarkson and Nance for #isaiah thomas, Channing Frye, and the 2018 first round draft pick. Although the Cavs are losing Channing Frye in the deal, who has been a great role player for Cleveland and an excellent teammate, gaining two fresh, young players can never hurt. Only $1 million of the $18 million on his 2019-20 contract is guaranteed. With that in mind, the Cavaliers traded not-Kyrie Irving to the Lakers for Larry Nance and Jordan Clarkson, and where the Cavaliers' drama, there are memes. The number one suitor for James has reportedly been the Lakers. The Lakers waited too long and Thomas signed with Phoenix. "So you put your head down, play hard, play for us".
This is a move that was the first of three reported by Wojnarowski.
For the Lakers this season, this trade doesn't kill their chances of making the postseason. The Cavs hope the move helps them get back to the NBA Finals for a fourth consecutive season. Last season Thomas played for the Celtics, where he experienced his best year as a pro.
Thomas has appeared in only 15 games for the Cavs since joining from Boston, after being hindered by a hip injury. As one GM said, "If he does not stay in Cleveland, he could be in trouble". He is averaging 14.7 points a game. They are now the No.3 seed in the East.
Cleveland is just 7-13 since Christmas Day, and the club's slide has coincided with Thomas' comeback.
Clarkson (6-5, 194) has appeared in 53 games (two starts) for Los Angeles this season, averaging 14.5 points on.448 shooting from the field, 3.0 rebounds and 3.3 assists in 23.7 minutes per game. Thomas has $6.3 million remaining on an expiring contract. They have made it no secret that they want to make a run at high-priced free agents in the offseason.
And if all that wasn't enough, the Cavs then dealt 36-year-old Dwyane Wade to Miami for a heavily protected second-round pick.
