Cleveland Cavaliers trade Isaiah Thomas to LA Lakers for Clarkson, Nance

Isaiah Thomas: I'm Tired Of Being Traded

The Lakers also now have a first round draft pick in the 2018 NBA Draft, as the Lakers do not control their own pick as it is owed to either Philadelphia or Boston.

"I'm exhausted of being traded", Thomas said following the Cavs' win over Minnesota. Honestly, Cavs just won with that trade. Clarkson can score, and the Cavaliers will crave that. I don't know, we'll see. This had to happen.

The Boston Celtics put themselves in an awkward position this summer - by scheduling Paul Pierce's jersey retirement against the Cleveland Cavaliers, they opened themselves up to the possibility that it would double as Isaiah Thomas' first game back in Boston.

In Jordan and Nance, whose father played for Cleveland, the Cavs are adding a pair of young players with upside.

Since the rest of the season is essentially a showcase for Thomas, who has stated many times that he desires a max contract in the summer, he will look to make an impact on a squad that is still in the hunt for the eighth seed in the Western Conference.

As for Thomas-who hasn't looked quite like himself since returning from a hip injury on January 2-Lakers head coach Luke Walton seemed to indicate the team plans to give him a steady diet of minutes right out of the gate. He will try to fill the role Thomas failed in so miserably.

- Cavs 2018 NBA Champs (@216Champ2) February 8, 2018Let's review Isaiah's tenure with the Cavs thus far. Clarkson has converted 44.8 percent of his shots from the field, 32.4 percent of his three-point attempts and 79.5 percent of his free throws.

Thirty-four-year-old forward Channing Frye has averaged 4.8 points and 2.5 rebounds in 12.4 minutes per contest this season.

Clarkson averages 14.5 points per game on 45 percent shooting. His father was a two-time All-Star for the Cavaliers. If they have a need to move that extra money, the Lakers could stretch the final two seasons of Luol Deng's contract and create an extra $10.6 million that would be more than enough.

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.
