Cavs clear path for Lakers to go after LeBron James, Paul George

Joe Vardon

Just hours after Isaiah Thomas stated that he was comfortable at Cleveland and that he was sick and exhausted of being traded, the journeyman was dealt once again, this time to the Los Angeles Lakers, in return for Jordan Clarkson and Larry Nance Jr.

But the Cavs will be losing assets in return in sending Isaiah Thomas to the Lakers, along with Channing Frye and their first-round pick.

As we count down to the trade deadline (3 p.m. ET), we will bring you any further news from around the league. They were brought on right before last year's, and while they've made plenty of deals elsewhere either in the sport or across their various businesses, the National Basketball Association trade deadline is something is uncharted territory for both Magic and Pelinka.

The Cavaliers in the trade will be acquiring marksman #Jordan Clarkson and big man#Larry Nance Jr. Thomas complained often about teammates and coaching since returning on January 2 from a hip injury.

On Wednesday night, following the Cavs overtime win over the Minnesota Timberwolves and as the trade rumors started to gain momentum, Thomas told ESPN that he was exhausted of being traded and hoped to stay in Cleveland. This season in only fifteen games for the Cavs, Thomas has averaged 14.7 points per game and has only made 36 percent of his shots.

Isaiah Thomas, who was acquired during the offseason from the Celtics in exchange for Kyrie Irving, was the first to go Thursday morning.

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. Clarkson is signed up to a four-year, $50million contract and will not be a free agent until after 2020. The trade helps them clear up salary cap space. The former Missouri guard has averaged 14.3 points per game for his career along with 2.9 assists.

"Whether I am in the gym all night or whether I am on my knees begging and pleading not to get traded, whether if I was begging to get traded, what is going to happen is going to happen", Nance added.
