LA Lakers Trade Jordan Clarkson to Cleveland for Isaiah Thomas, More

In those 15 games this season he is averaging 14.7 points and 4.5 assist per night.

According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, this scare has led to teams pushing forward less attractive offers to the Lakers.

While the first-round pick will help Los Angeles' rebuilding process, Thomas is the headliner. He hasn't looked all that good since returning from injury.

The Cavaliers are a mess right now.

In truth, it seems like a pretty solid move. Does this improve their playoff chances? Clarkson and Nance both figure to contribute off the Cavaliers' bench, possibly taking minutes away from the likes of J.R. Smith, Dwyane Wade, Kyle Korver, and Tristan Thompson. Worse is that the Cavaliers are just 6-8 with him in the lineup, a record that would have been worse if not for LeBron James' game-winning heroics in Wednesday's victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves. His base salary is never higher than $13.4 million during the life of the contract, which is a solid $5 million less per season than what Evan Turner is earning in Portland. But Clarkson is the infinitely more interesting part of this deal.

Clarkson, 25, spent his first three-plus seasons with the Lakers. They had been attempting to make deals with multiple teams up until the deadline. But does it favor the Cavaliers or Lakers more?
