Twitter Reacts to the Isaiah Thomas Trade

Twitter Reacts to the Isaiah Thomas Trade

In facilitating a trade with them involving Jordan Clarkson, the Cleveland Cavaliers might've unintentionally open the door for LeBron James signing with the Los Angeles Lakers this summer.

The Lakers, of course, already played the Celtics in Boston back on November 8, which likely means (barring a second trade before the 3 p.m. deadline) that Thomas' video will have to wait until 2018-19.

Thomas, whose hip injury factored in a move that had sent him from the Boston Celtics to the Cavaliers in the preseason, was expected to fill the shoes of Kyrie Irving. The Cavs traded six players, including Isaiah Thomas, Dwyane Wade and Derrick Rose, and two future draft picks in moves created to not only help them in the short term but could potentially help keep LeBron James beyond this season.

George Hill came to Cleveland from Sacramento, and Rodney Hood from Utah - which received Rose - as the Cavaliers dealt away Rose, Wade, Jae Crowder and Iman Shumpert, changing almost half their rotation. The Sacramento Kings receive Joe Johnson, Iman Shumpert and a 2020 second-round draft pick in the trade, while Hood and Hill go to the Cavs.

As the Thomas swap was being digested around the league, the Cavs completed a three-team deal with Utah and Sacramento. The Cavs made their moves. But after the initial confusion over the Cavs shipping Thomas west for two young players, Cleveland kept dealing - and the picture grew clearer.

The Cavaliers entered the day knowing they needed to make at least one deal before the deadline passed.

Wade, on the other hand, posted out a video thanking the Cavaliers fan base and their organization for their support while he was there, but overall, he's excited that himself and his family get to move back home to Miami.

"Collectively, as a group, we got to do better", Thomas told reporters after a loss Tuesday night.

"We want fountains, not drains".

Orlando traded point guard Elfrid Payton to Phoenix for a 2018 second-round pick. Defensively, he's taller than Thomas, which already works to Cleveland's advantage.

But the Cavaliers clearly decided they weren't going to waste what could be James' final season in Cleveland. He and James were a forced fit, and it became obvious to the Cavs they had to pull the plug on the experiment.

Altman said he wanted to "shuffle the deck" and re-energise the Cavaliers.

Over 43 games in his first season with the Kings, Hill averaged 10.3 points, 2.7 rebounds and 2.8 assists over 26.6 minutes.

Lue tweaked his rotations against the Timberwolves, giving more minutes to rookie Cedi Osman, who provided an infusion of needed energy.

Although Payton is posting career highs in scoring (13 points per game), field-goal percentage (.520) and 3-point shooting percentage (.373), he is regarded as a subpar shooter.

"It's always tough when you lose teammates", James said.
