Isaiah Thomas Allegedly "Ecstatic" To Be A Laker

So, we were certainly caught a bit off guard when Bovada released the odds for where LeBron James will begin the 2018-2019 National Basketball Association season.

"I like the pieces we have coming in", he told the media after the trades were announced.

The Cavaliers traded guard Thomas, Channing Frye and their 2018 first-round pick to the Los Angeles Lakers for guard Jordan Clarkson and forward Larry Nance Jr.

He took to twitter last night after the trade was finalized to thank the Cavs organization, tweeting, "It was only 15 games, but still an experience that I'm grateful for", Thomas wrote.

"It's my job to get these guys integrated as fast as possible", James said.

The greatest surprise was that recently acquired Isaiah Thomas was sent back to Lakers with Jordan Clarkson and Larry Nance Jr. moving in the opposite direction.

The Cavaliers, though, had other plans and needed to do something rash while in a prolonged slump and with All-Star forward Kevin Love out with a broken left hand. That means Hood could start alongside Smith at times, or Cleveland could go bigger, presumably with Nance or Jeff Green, when the opponent calls for it.

He added: "It's always tough when you lose teammates".

Having lost 13 of their last 20 games and with the season in the balance, the Cleveland Cavaliers finally pulled the trigger before the trade deadline and went all in to keep their championship hopes alive.

"I feel much better culturally and about the air in the building", Altman said. "It hasn't been as planned, but I definitely want to be here".

"I want Isaiah to get his bounce back, get his spring back, get healthy". "You know, being out seven months is hard for anybody". Whether he is playing with the ball in his hands or not, his play-making and three-point shooting opportunities will improve. But he's a defensive liability on a defensively challenged team and the Cavs felt it was best to move him. But James believes he and Cleveland's coaching staff are up to the challenge.

Wade and Rose, meanwhile, are two former MVPs who are way past their prime and can no longer contribute to help alleviate the load from James. I'm happy as hell for D-Wade. That's how it should be.

-Wade returns to the Miami Heat on Friday in what is expected to be a joyous reunion for players and fans alike. Koby (Altman) and I have had enough conversations where it was clear, with the way the system was going, it wasn't beneficial for either party. (Thomas and Frye are both on expiring contracts and unlikely to re-sign with the team this summer.) Additionally, if the Lakers choose not to re-sign restricted free agent Julius Randle after this year and stretch the final two years of Luol Deng's contract, they will have plenty of room for multiple stars. "It was a business, it was a business approach this morning and a business approach to this game, and it was a good win for us".
