Cleveland acquired Thomas from the Boston Celtics in a trade involving All-Star Kyrie Irving.

The Cavaliers are dealing guard Isaiah Thomas, forward Channing Frye and one of their two first-round draft picks to the Los Angeles Lakers in exchange for point guard Jordan Clarkson and forward Larry Nance Jr., the Lakers announced Thursday.

The rest of the team is playing great as well. This trade was about clearing out the combined $14.7 million owed to Clarkson and Nance for the 2018 season.

At the league's current $101 million estimate for the 2018-19 season salary cap, $60 million is just about enough for two max contracts for players with 7-9 seasons of National Basketball Association experience and about $6 million short of the $65.7 million necessary to sign one 30 percent max player and one 35 percent max player. Nance also returns home to OH, he was born in Akron and now has a chance to suit up for his hometown Cavs. In Los Angeles he might have more opportunity to run the offense the way he wants to. But if he can show that he gets along with players like Brandon Ingram and Lonzo Ball, there is appeal to keep him around as a veteran scoring option in the backcourt. Every time I watch him he's just giving it his all on the court. I like it here. I like it here, it hasn't gone as planned, but I definitely want to be here.

Over the years, Channing Frye became a fan favorite in Cleveland and was part of the team's 2016 championship win.

The big news here is that once again, Isaiah Thomas is on the move. He averaged just 14.7 ppg and shot just 36.1 percent from the field and 25.3 percent on 3-pointers. Talk about a tough business.

Indicted In Global Cybercrime Ring That Stole $530M
Actual losses-which hit a wide swath of financial institutions, merchants, and private individuals-totaled more than $530 million. They face charges that include identity theft, bank fraud, wire fraud and money laundering.

This could be an interesting development in terms of the team's offensive style. The Lakers are now in position to have $46.9 million in cap space this Summer that could lead to getting you guessed it, LeBron James. Packaging their young players with Luol Deng's awful contract was their pathway forward, but they have yet to find a trade partner and seem settled on addressing this after the season.
