Trade prompts Washington to reschedule Isaiah Thomas' jersey retirement

Cavs guard Isaiah Thomas

After agreeing to trade Isaiah Thomas and Channing Frye to the Los Angeles Lakers, the Cavs have reportedly agreed to trade Jae Crowder and Derrick Rose to Utah as part of a three-team deal involving the Sacramento Kings. Nance Jr.is the son of former Cavalier Larry Nance.

Thursday's wild National Basketball Association trade deadline has had long-reaching ramifications, extending far beyond the pros.

While Thomas may have been resistant to the idea of being traded, one person is certainly happy with this outcome, his father James Thomas, a lifelong Lakers fan. Things were not going well for the Cavaliers and Thomas, with a bevy of chemistry issues plaguing the team and driving a wedge in between players in the locker room. Both are great young players that will help them in the East. After an abysmal start to the season in Cleveland, Thomas was traded to the Los Angeles Lakers before the trade deadline.

Due to a number of reasons - including recovering from his hip injury, playing more often without the ball and adjusting to Cleveland's offense - Thomas' percentage on driving layups dropped to 46.4 percent this year (in a small sample size). He arrived in Cleveland via trade just last August.

Maybe by trading Thomas, if he is the cause, the dissension will dissipate.


Because of sending their own pick to the Lakers, the Cavaliers are now unable to deal the Brooklyn Nets' unprotected selection in 2018, which is close to being the No. 1 overall choice.

The Celtics were not involved, but the Cavaliers and the Lakers just changed their season in multiple ways, and the ramifications of this trade could have a huge impact on this season, and the future for Boston.

"I'm exhausted of being traded", he said.

In cases like these, the Lakers have two choices: Stand pat and wait for another team to blink, or try to improve the offer with pieces that might not hurt as much to lose as it would hurt to not open up the two max slots Magic Johnson speaks of as if they already exist. 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.
