Cavs send Thomas, Frye to LA in trade with Lakers

Isaiah Thomas traded Isaiah Thomas Lakers

As most hoops fans know by now, the Cavs made wholesale roster changes prior to Thursday's trade deadline. Hopefully Clarkson and Nance Jr. make immediate and lasting impacts for this Cavaliers team and can provide LeBron the support he needs in order to win his fourth finals title in his career.

The Cavs also acquired Rodney Hood and George Hill as part of a three-team deal later in the afternoon, sending out Jae Crowder and Derrick Rose to the Utah Jazz and Iman Shumpert to the Sacramento Kings.

With those other moves in perspective, it's a lot easier to see where Clarkson and Nance Jr. fit in the Cleveland Cavaliers' new rotation.

Both Thomas ($6.3 million) and Frye ($7.4 million) are on expiring contracts. This means that it's now entirely possible that they can sign both LeBron James and Paul George, and no commissioner can veto that. He also noted that the Cavs got younger and more athletic. Clarkson is a lifetime 44.2 percent shooter from the field and 33.2 percent from three-point range. One, he injects more speed into an already-quick Lakers offense, now first in the league in pace, ahead of the champion Golden State Warriors.

"He's worked too hard to get back, and he's a ball dominant player", said Thomas' agent, Aaron Goodwin to Cleveland.com. For the last four years, this city has watched me grow, LA has become my home and the incredible people here have become my family. He's going to be a core piece for us moving forward. The Cavs can't get an A grade, however, because they may have parted the seas for Los Angeles to swipe James this summer. But this year ... man, it's not even going to be a thing.

There was word recently that the Cavs had wanted to move Thomas. That's nothing the old sheriff of Wade County can't fix. "This front office has shown what they can do to go get pieces and how active they are about winning". Along with Ricky Rubio, Crowder can now go back to being a perimeter defensive terror while backed up by French giant Rudy Gobert in the post.

It has underperformed by 69.70% the S&P500.The move comes after 7 months positive chart setup for the $523.23 million company. A low ratio specifies that the company is possibly undervalued, while a higher than average P/S may suggest overvaluation.

Finally we arrive here at the moment of truth - the principal suspect of all this madness.

Over his four-year National Basketball Association career, Clarkson, 25, has averaged 14.3 points, 3.3 rebounds, 2.9 assists and 1.0 steals in 273 games.

Also, while Love is out, Nance jumps in as the fill-in starting power forward, and he's more than capable of holding his own and doing more than appear on the highlight reels.

This season, Clarkson is averaging 14.5 points, 3.0 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 0.7 steals over 23.7 minutes in 53 games, which includes two starts.

In trading away Clarkson and Nance, the Lakers shed $14.8 million in salary ahead of the 2018-19 season. "He's so excited. Magic [Johnson], you can tell them". But they're used to that by now.
