After whirlwind day, LeBron excited by Cavs' additions

Cleavland Isaiah Thomas ‘Tired Of Being Traded’ Rather Stay With Cleveland Cavaliers

James has reached the NBA Finals in seven straight seasons.

The Cleveland Cavaliers have acquired guard George Hill from the Sacramento Kings and guard Rodney Hood from the Utah Jazz as part of a three-team trade, Cavaliers General Manager Koby Altman announced today from Cleveland Clinic Courts.

A day after the Cavaliers overhauled their roster with a tornado of trades that ripped through the NBA, James didn't dwell on what's lost, who's no longer around or how much time Cleveland has left to salvage its season. Most of those wins have come with Lonzo Ball sidelined thanks to a knee injury, and the squad is better when he's on the floor. Cleveland was the story Thursday.

In the deal, the Lakers sent Jordan Clarkson and Larry Nance Jr.to the Cavaliers in exchange for Isaiah Thomas, Channing Frye, and a first round pick in 2018.

George Hill came from Sacramento and Rodney Hood from Utah as the Cavaliers dealt away Rose, Wade, Jae Crowder and Iman Shumpert - changing almost half their rotation. Crowder, Shumpert and Rose all ranked in the bottom third of the league in terms of overall points allowed per possession this season.

Lue said that he envisions JR Smith remaining as the starter at shooting guard despite Cleveland adding Hood and Clarkson. As a part of the deal, the Nuggets will also receive a second round draft pick from the Knicks.

"I came here to create flexibility for our organisation so one day we can have a superstar come here with our young core", he added.

Then, the Cavaliers traded guard Dwyane Wade to the Miami Heat for a heavily-protected second-round pick in the NBA Draft, which they turned around and sent to the Kings. "It's my job to get these guys integrated, on the same page as us".

The most controversial moves involved Thomas and Wade.

Many fans suspect the trade deal opened up the possibility of James heading to the Lakers in the summer after they released more space on their salary cap. Last week, the Pistons made a blockbuster trade for Blake Griffin.

After a month of blowout losses, damaging stories about team chemistry, the souring relationship (if there was even any) between James and Cavs owner Dan Gilbert, and discontent, the Cavs have now younger, fresher players who can support the King and lead them back to the promised land.

If you can count on Stan Van Gundy for one thing, it's to make a splash at the trade deadline. Plus, they take in the marksmanship of the 6-foot-11 Frye, which is always welcome in this three-point shooting era. His slew of deadline moves appear to have buoyed Cleveland's chances of getting by Boston, Toronto and others for another NBA Finals.

Now? Listen, they're not the Bad Boys, but Nance is an athletic defender who can guard multiple positions, Hood is a capable 3-and-D guy (if more of the 3 and less of the D variety), and Hill, though his on/off numbers were terrible in the context of that Sacramento train wreck, is a defensive-minded player who can still guard the pick and roll at an elite level - which is clearly a monumental upgrade from Thomas.

In one hour, the Cleveland Cavaliers basically got a brand-new basketball team. The Denver Nuggets brought in Devin Harris and sent out Emmanuel Mudiay in a three-team trade with NY that landed Doug McDermott in Dallas. The previous mark was 39 set by Golden State and Dallas on March 25, 2016. You'd think that would be bad, but while the Cavs got better, they may have actually lowered their ceiling.
