They also won't have the six players that they traded, so the Cavs will be short six players tonight against the Atlanta Hawks. How will Clarkson, Nance, Hood and Hill adapt to playing alongside James, whose autocratic leadership style doesn't suit everyone?

As for Thomas, it's easy to see why he wore out his welcome in Cleveland.

Cleveland Cavaliers fans have to be thrilled with the flurry of trades that helped the defending Eastern Conference champions get younger, much more athletic on the wing, and better defensively.

The Cavaliers, Sacramento Kings and Utah Jazz completed a three-team trade that resulted in Derrick Rose and Jae Crowder being sent to the Jazz, Iman Shumpert and Joe Johnson being sent to the Kings and George Hill and Rodney Hood being sent to the Cavs.

The Cleveland Cavaliers, who acquired Thomas last summer, are sending the 29-year-old point guard to the Los Angeles Lakers. "I know the coaching staff and [coach] T Lue is going to do it as well, but it's my job to get these guys on the same page with us where we want to accomplish what we want to do". He will earn $2.27 million next season and will require a $3.37 million qualifying offer in 2019-20.

Jordan Clarkson is averaging 14.5 points a game on 45% shooting, while Nance is averaging eight points a game while pulling down 6 rebounds a game. I love the way Julius [Randle] is playing right now; this is the best I have seen him play.

He reflected on the trade in an Instagram post. I'm happy as hell for D-Wade. "Thank you guys for the past 2½ years!"

When he arrived in Cleveland, the talented guard was fresh off a successful run with the Boston Celtics, who traded him for Kyrie Irving in 2017.

The Thomas deal deal marked a frenzied deadline day for Cleveland, who also offloaded Dwyane Wade back to the Miami Heat in exchange for a protected second round pick. The former first-round pick is a restricted free agent this summer, and the Mavs will use the rest of the season as an audition for the future.

James then received an inbound pass from midcourt right at the top of the key then turned around for a fadeaway jumper that sealed the game at the buzzer. He played better on Wednesday night, scoring 13 points with seven assists in 31 minutes.

Most of the reaction to the first trade between Cleveland and the Los Angeles Lakers have been positive.

Since the Lakers snapped a nine-game losing streak with a win over Atlanta on January 7, Randle has played 27 minutes per game and become one of the Lakers' most reliable players down the stretch of close games.

"Clearly Kyrie Irving won the trade".

Altman believes the younger players will not only keep the Cavs sustainable for the long-term, but will convince James to finish his career with the Cavaliers. The only downside to the trade for the Cavs was that it seemingly created a gap at point guard, but the team quickly filled it.

To further complicate the matter, big man Kendrick Perkins has announced on Twitter that he'd been signed by the Cavs - despite the fact he already plays with the Canton Charge, the Cavs' feeder club.

There's also a chance Cleveland could eventually call up veteran center Kendrick Perkins from G League affiliate Canton.
