Veteran big man Channing Frye's time as a member of the Cleveland Cavaliers came to an end on Thursday when he was dealt with Isaiah Thomas to the Los Angeles Lakers. This is important to note, as it now means Cleveland can't trade the 2018 Brooklyn Nets first round pick they acquired from the Celtics in the Thomas trade, without acquiring an additional 2018 first round pick.

Thomas finished his career as the program's eighth all-time leading scorer with 1,721 career points for an average of 16.4 points per game. With LeBron James potentially declining his contract option this summer and becoming a free agent, the Cavs had to decide whether to make another run at an National Basketball Association championship or begin rebuilding.

Nance is actually the more intriguing player for Cleveland, at least for the rest of this season.

Crucially, the trade frees up salary space for the Lakers which could enable them to pursue a blockbuster deal for James, who will enter free agency in the summer. The 2016 NBA Champion appeared in 44 games (one start) for the Cavaliers this season, notching 4.8 points (.497 FG%) and 2.5 rebounds in 12.4 minutes. The Sacramento Kings dealt him to the Phoenix Suns in July 2014.

In addition to players, the Lakers will also get the Cavaliers' protected first-round pick in 2018.

The Cavs wanted defensive help, and Clarkson and Nance should help in that area.

UW's ticket office is offering full refunds to any fans who purchased single-game tickets for the Utah game, Henderson said. His future in Los Angeles remains up in the air while the team seems poised to make a run at prominent free agents in the summer, which could include James.

Clarkson, however, is shooting 32.4 percent on 3-pointers this season, while Nance is a none-threat from deep. "You don't want to foul him, and I thought KAT (Towns) had great pressure on the ball".

The Cavs began their overhaul by sending disappointing guard Isaiah Thomas to the Los Angeles Lakers.

Following Wednesday's embarrassing loss to the 17-win Orlando Magic - the Cavs blew a 21-point lead and scored nine points in the fourth quarter - Thomas questioned whether the team makes enough in-game adjustments. Interesting moves for both teams. Plus, he was involved in some of their off-court drama, and it was likely best to just move him and help clear the air.

The Quicken Loans Arena crowd erupted and James was mobbed by teammates as the struggling Cavs, who have won just seven of their last 20 games, finally had something to celebrate after weeks of tension and turmoil in a season slowly slipping away.
