Huskies reschedule Isaiah Thomas jersey retirement after his trade to the Lakers

The Cavs began their shocking overhaul by sending the disappointing Thomas along with forward Channing Frye and one of their two first-round picks to the Los Angeles Lakers for point guard Jordan Clarkson and forward Larry Nance Jr.

Boston Celtics guard Isaiah Thomas looks to pass the ball as Cleveland Cavaliers guard Iman Shumpert, left, defends during the first half of Game 2 of the NBA basketball Eastern Conference finals, Friday, May 19, 2017, in Boston. He averaged just 14.7 points in those games.

The move allowed the Lakers to clear the salary cap space necessary to make a run at elite free agents in each of the next two summers.

Cleveland have been looking for players who can help this season and beyond and Nance and Clarkson fit that mould.

The Cleveland Cavaliers have been an absolute mess for the last month or so, but with the trade deadline approaching quickly, the team made sure they at least attempted to fix their problems.

Additionally, if Thomas can find himself and return to near the level that he was at last season, Los Angeles will have received one of the most lethal scoring threats in the league. The Sacramento Kings dealt him to the Phoenix Suns in July 2014.

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. Clarkson and Nance Jr. will improve their bench. It would also be much less onerous to either trade or stretch Deng at that point, paralleling his former teammate Joakim Noah's situation in NY without as much urgency to finalize the separation now. If that is the case, this very well could be the move that really ends James' reign over the East, and leads to his eventual departure (which probably would have happened anyways). Isaiah was quoted last night after Cleveland's 140-138 overtime win over the Minnesota Timberwolves saying, "I'm exhausted of being traded".

James finished with 37 points, 15 assists and 10 rebounds in 48 minutes. With players like Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram, and Kyle Kuzma, the Lakers have more than enough youth that would attract free agents to play in the city of angels. I like it here, it hasn't gone as planned, but I definitely want to be here. Both Nance and Clarkson were vital pieces to this current team, and they could be in shambles for a while. It appears, however, that the Cavs have a solution for their next game just in case they don't get all four new players to play in time, per Dave McMenamin of ESPN.
