Cavs revamp roster at trading deadline hoping LeBron stays

Cleveland Cavaliers´ Le Bron James left celebrates after making the game-winning basket in overtime

Did Cavs really improve at trade deadline? We have already experienced some insane trades during the off-season with Kyrie Irving to the Celtics, Paul George to the Thunder bringing Carmelo Anthony along with him.

By in-season trade standards, this is an absolute blockbuster.

Just hours before Thursday's 3 p.m. ET trade deadline, the Cleveland Cavaliers have undergone a massive makeover. They could be potentially using that money to get LeBron James or maybe even Paul George.

Summer acquisitions Isaiah Thomas (Los Angeles Lakers) and Jae Crowder (Utah Jazz) are out, along with 2016 champs Channing Frye (Lakers) and Iman Shumpert (Sacramento Kings).

Not sure why Dwayne Wade had to be traded to Miami for a protected second round pick.

Out too go 2010-11 MVP Derrick Rose and 2006 finals MVP Dwyane Wade, with Rose expected to be waived by the Jazz and Wade returning to Miami, where he won three championships.


Clarkson was averaging 14.5 points, 3.3 assists, and 3.0 rebounds per game with the Lakers prior to the trade.

Thomas will be an unrestricted free agent this summer, and it will be interesting to see how much money he commands and where he ends up. While the Cavs, on the other hand, started out hot with a 13 game win streak.

Not only is that a solid lineup, with a healthy balance of youth and experience, but the newly acquired athleticism and versatility should allow Ty Lue to get more creative with his lineups.

It was clear Thomas has not reached maximum health from his back injury, and his outspoken attitude may have been a turnoff to many in the organization including King James.

-Jameer Nelson was traded for the second time in seven days, going from the Chicago Bulls to the Pistons in a deal that reunited the point guard with former coach Stan Van Gundy. "I know that he is committed to this team and he'll be committed to these new players". He's also shooting a solid 46 percent from the field. In fact, the team had been staggering minutes between him and LeBron James as a way to acknowledge the two weren't working well together. This trade was all about future cap space and the first round pick for the Lakers. It is hard to see him go and we wish Channing and his family the very best.
