Los Angeles Lakers intend on keeping Isaiah Thomas and Channing Frye

Los Angeles Lakers intend on keeping Isaiah Thomas and Channing Frye

This season, Clarkson is averaging 14.5 points, 3.0 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 0.7 steals over 23.7 minutes in 53 games, which includes two starts.

The Cavaliers acquired Jordan Clarkson and Larry Nance Jr.in the deal with Los Angeles, which also got Channing Frye and a first-round pick from Cleveland.

OK, there's a lot to unpack here. He's a 6-9 wing who can defend multiple positions and gives them some much-needed help on the boards. The Cavaliers got a heavily protected second-round pick in the deal.

For the Cavs, they've traded plenty of stars of the past along with a couple of players who were expected to carry them to success in the present. The Lakers can increase their cap space to around $70 million if they do not bring back Randle, who will be a restricted free agent, and find a solution, likely the stretch provision, to the $37 million that is owed to Deng, according to ESPN's Bobby Marks. They made out like bandits.

No one will be handing out defensive player of the year awards to any of the newcomers - especially to Hood and Clarkson - but Hill and Nance individually represent immediate upgrades for the Cavs. Along the way, the Cavaliers got younger and friendlier, essentially pressing reboot on a derailed season in hopes of making a fourth consecutive NBA Finals appearance and enticing LeBron James to re-sign this summer. If Thomas proves to be a malcontent, don't be shocked if he winds up getting cut loose.

The massive makeover is meant to help the Cavs make another title run in 2018 with James, who can opt out of his $35.6 million contract this summer and become a free agent.

James is the ultimate equalizer, and maybe these pieces were traded for specifically because James had the confidence that he could get them to come together, and make up a team that can work together in a way that the previous one could not.

GM, Ford miss out on tax benefit Trump hands to foreign foes
The crosstown rival's Q4 report almost two weeks ago showed a 7-percent EPS miss in spite of a 333-percent year-over-year gain. Standpoint Research upgraded Ford Motor from a "hold" rating to a "buy" rating in a research note on Wednesday, October 4th.

It will be interesting to see how the Lakers play with Thomas being added into the mix. But his body right now is not going- has not allowed him to.

"I'm excited. Great young team".

The Golden State Warriors, of course, have the best betting odds to win this year's National Basketball Association title.

The Cavaliers have clearly looked at this season as absolute rock bottom, and have done everything they can to transform this team as much as possible.

The Warriors didn't do anything to improve, but their rival Cavaliers did.

The Boston Celtics have depth and the Toronto Raptors are finally looking like a serious team with a good bench, while Cleveland have many problems with their roster. I'm curious to see what he'll do in Cleveland.

Isaiah Thomas had a great season with the Celtics back in 2016, but at this moment he is struggling to adjust and he is a not good fit alongside LeBron James and Kevin Love.
