Isaiah Thomas : I'm Tired Of Being Traded

The Cavaliers traded away Thomas, as well as Channing Frye and a protected first-round pick in 2018 to the Los Angeles Lakers for guard Jordan Clarkson and forward Larry Nance Jr. The Lakers get a good shooter in Fyre and a superstar in Thomas, but we will have to see if Thomas fits in L.A. Ultimately, both teams get better moving into the playoffs. Considering the Cavaliers are the team to beat in the East, and the Boston Celtics have the Lakers pick, you could not make a more impactful trade that did not involve the Celtics themselves.

The Lakers have been overachieving this season, despite the abundance of youth in the roster, having won 22 games through two-thirds of the regular season, four short of their win total from 2016-17. Hood is a restricted free agent this summer and might cost some money, and Clarkson is on a longer-term deal, but the Cavs got younger and more athletic Thursday in one fell swoop.

ESPN's Brian Windhorst notes that with Cleveland taking on long-term money and helping clear cap space, they are wagering that LeBron James decides to stay with the team when he opts out of his contract and becomes a free agent this off-season.

"I'm exhausted of being traded", Thomas told Cleveland.com. He is averaging 14.5 points and 4.5 assists in 27.1 minutes per game.

A two-time all-star, Thomas has also proven himself capable of running offenses himself, both when Ball sits and with him on the floor. We're just pawns in the game at this point. On top of all that, we still can not take Thomas' play for granted.

"Whether I am in the gym all night or whether I am on my knees begging and pleading not to get traded, whether if I was begging to get traded, what is going to happen is going to happen", Nance added.

First of all, there are a lot of different directions this trade could go.

The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Thursday because the teams need National Basketball Association approval before the trade can be completed.

After three straight Finals appearances and a title in 2016, the Cavs are now third in the East.
