Derrick Rose Dwyane Wade Isaiah Thomas

The Cleveland Cavaliers appear to be revamping their roster by trading their aging assets to appease superstar LeBron James, who still has not committed to staying with the team after this season. In all, the Cavs traded away six players in exchange for four players and one draft pick.

Just hours before the trading deadline today, the Cavaliers traded Isaiah Thomas, Channing Frye and a first round draft pick to the Los Angeles Lakers for Jordan Clarkson and Larry Nance Jr..

In a 3 team trade with Utah, the Cavaliers acquired George Hill and Rodney Hood for Derrick Rose. Utah will likely cut Rose who is a liability due to his frequent injuries.

The Cavs also sent Dwyane Wade back to Miami in exchange for Miami’s “heavily protected” 2nd round draft pick. Wade, 36, reportedly asked to be traded back to Miami to be closer to his family.

Wade took an unexplained leave of absence from the Cavs last month after a rumored fight with a teammate during practice. At the time, Cavs Coach Tyronn Lue said Wade was taking a leave of absence for “personal reasons”.

LeBron James #23 an Isaiah Thomas #3 of the Cleveland Cavaliers

Thomas, 29, who came over from the Boston Celtics in exchange for Cavs guard Kyrie Irving, quickly became enemy number one after bad mouthing the team and leaking locker room secrets to sports reporters.

The tension between James and Thomas was evident during the Cavaliers vs Timberwolves game on Wednesday, when James refused to pass Thomas the ball. Then, after hitting the game winning shot in overtime, James blew past Thomas and ignored him during the team celebration.

In a post titled “Cavaliers Get Isaiah Thomas The F-ck Out Of Here,” Deadspin.com reports Thomas isn’t likely to convince any teams to “bring out the Brinks truck” when he becomes a free agent this summer.

    It’s a homecoming. DW is a great champion who has become a shadow of himself and a journeyman. Not a way to end a great career. His request tells you all; regrets. His shirt will hang on the rafters.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    He needs to retire so he can spend more time with Gabby.

    YESSSS!!!! But why can’t we get rid of Tristian and JR? Tristian is the curse sooooo…. until he’s gone I’m still scared. Did we get a rim protector yet? Any Cavs fans on here?

  • my view

    What’s the disturbing rumors?

  • R Smith

    Stop…It was because of the death of his agent, Henry Thomas.

    I hadn’t heard anything about her having another miscarriage but I do agree that pic up top of him is sus. I was going to comment on that till I read yours first.

  • justlooking

    Dwayne sitting up there like Howww Youuuu Doern.

  • TMW

    If the next team waives Rose, what happens to his adidas endorsement? I read that was the reason why he hasn’t “retired” yet, because he had 7 years (and 80M) remaining on that contract.

  • KcoolMuziq

    Oh wow! Sorry to hear that.?

  • R Smith

    Disturbing??? How about it was because of the death of his agent, Henry Thomas.

  • Fire & Ice

    LOL ???

  • MsPam

    IT would of still be a Cav if he had learned to keep his mouth shut. The Cavs are Bron Bronx team not his, have fun with the Lakers IT.???

  • You Could Never

    I hope he keeps getting guap outta their DUMB asses. When he was caught up in those rape allegations they should have invoked their morals clause on the basis that the allegations had,“a material adverse effect against the reputation of Adidas.” Yet THEY chose not to. THAT was their opportunity to get rid of his ass THEN and they did not.

  • You Could Never

    After last night Bron showed a couple of things.

    A. No team needs 1, 2, 3…FIVE point guards. Not when HE is one of the five and can play point guard at ANY time. And is a helleva PG when he does play that position. Matter of fact, Cavs had a LOT of overlapping positions. Like not just 1 on the bench in a clutch. How many damn shooting guards or small forwards or again, point guards DO YALL NEED? Come on now.

    AND

    B. He still has ups. He still is making key GAME winning plays.

    How great all of this comes not even 24 hours after his biggest game this season. I dont eem LIKE LeBum. But he DID THAT THERE SHIT LAST NIGHT.

  • Pitty Patty

    I can’t stand DRose illerate ass. He should have been let go when it was found out he cheated to get into college. The college’s NCAA title got snatched cause of his damn ass. And really aint been relevant since his rookie year. His legs and knees made out of silly puddy.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    It’s obvious by their body language that they aren’t that into each other and Gabby only went through with the marriage to save face due to the break baby.

  • You Could Never

    They didnt win. They were in the finals against Kansas. But their whole season indeed got vacated. John Calipari got their season vacated. UofM athletic director got it vacated. Derrick Rose only did what Derrick Rose was ALLOWED to do. They knew that nigga couldnt read.

  • ReadingIsFundamental4Real

    hell yeah…I tell these people all the time…I live here, I’m not from here; you don’t want this! If you don’t understand, I will chop and screw it for you. I even imported my husband from Houston cause these Cali dudes don’t know nothing about excuse me miss and hey “mane”…lol! . Can’t beat that Southern Charm!!!!!

  • Jazzy T

    OMG yes indeed, that is the first thing I thought!
    Gabby, girrllllll stop playing with your man’s tail!!

  • Pitty Patty

    I knew it was something close to that. Dude was ALL hype. Now he done went and married this “racist” white girl or mixed girl or whatever she is. Talking mess about dark skinned women. Derrick is in a sunken place with broken knees SMH.

  • You Could Never

    I told my kids he is their version far as being forever injured….of my generations Grant Hill. Its sad.

    I feel bad for Isaiah Thomas… People show him so much disrespect, they don’t treat no other player that can average 30 points a game, that way.

    yes ma’am ….shole did.

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    “On Fondren.. on on on FONDREN!” I went to school with Walter (the guy on that song) and his sister Jackie. We went to Welch together. Jose Cruz’ (Astros player for those who don’t remember) daughter was there at the same time, too. She was uppity though, only hung out with the white girls. All cheerleaders. And my mom has been living in that Ridgemont 4 since 1994… Hence my screen name, which you probably caught on to since you from Houston, too.

    I went to Welch for one year…. my daddy said oh hell no and moved me to Sugar Land. lol. I use to date one of Jose Cruz’s sons. Im 38. I was wayyyy to young to be dating his son. He took me to homecoming the ONE year I attended Channelview High. You see my bad ass got around the H-town area schools. I hated that school and went back to the south…. ironically, my Husband is from Humble. We tease each other all the time about my uppity/ghetto southside ass and his uppity/ignorant northside ass. …Greenspoint… YUK!!!!

  • what?why

    LeBron is such a diva and totally obnoxious!

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    I’m 40 going on 41 in June. I went to Welch all three years and yes, it has always been a hood school. Then went to Westbury for my first two years of HS then got kicked out for fighting and my third year I went to CLC ? I know you remember what they called it back in the day.. And I can already imagine how you and your hubby’s convos go regarding Southside>that nawf ?? Funny though how Houstonians can ALWAYS tell the difference between someone from the nawf and the souf! We just “built” differently (and I ain’t referring to body wise..) From the way we talk, walk ,dress ,everything !

    Not that Gunspoint though! ?

  • JV

    He brought it on himself. No one wanted to like IT more than me, and he was the only Boston player I liked, but not only is he just not the same — at all! — but he constantly talked trash about the team. IT is the last person who should ever talk trash about someone else’s defense.

    Glad that the Cavs are going to be fun to watch again, and glad Derrick Rose is gone!!

  • JV

    Whats funny is… every year some NBA talking head says Kevin Love is GONE… he’s one of the only guys left! LOL

    You’ll have a nice draft pick though.. get somebody like Bamba or Trae.

    You were a bad ass in kiddie jail! Hubby and I have fun. especially when we are out an about people watching here in Cali. we are a mess.

  • VM

    No rim protector, I thought they were going after Deandre Jordan. Youth is the the only upside for now. I agree they should’ve got rid of Thompson and JR (LeBron’s homeboys). Their talent has disappeared since receiving their big paydays. I know JR is streaky but Thompson can’t sniff a rebound coming his way in slowmo.

  • DaughterOfaQueen

    Dwayne up top looking all spicy?

  • JV
  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    They tried to get rid of Tristian and JR first, but the Clippers would only take them if they included the Brooklyn pick. Nobody would take those two without the pick. Other teams see JR and Tristian as washed, but their contracts are still too big for them to take on when the guys aren’t playing good. And Cavs didn’t want to get Jordan for 3 months and he bounce due to free agency and they would have given up that first round pick for nothing. That Kardashian Kurse is real. Tristian ain’t been good since he started dating her. He also would never get hurt and had never missed a game….. until they started dating. I really feel like it is the Kardashian Kurse that is affecting the whole team. I know it sounds stupid, but the same happened to Kris Humphries when he was in Brooklyn.

  • Simone

  • VM

    Hindsight 20/20 LeBron wasn’t thinking long term when he got his boys the big payday. They both haven’t lived up to their value, it’s like they play the game all nonchalant minimum effort while LeBron plays heavy minutes. JR has always been streaky and irresponsible. You’re right about Tristan he’s Lamar Odom 2.0. The dude use to be a rebounding machine and he’s been struggling big time. When you look at it like that, the Kardashian curse looks like its got some truth to it. Kris ended up bouncing around from team to team and he was never the same. I don’t think he’s even in the league anymore. I thought Deandre wanted to play with LeBron. Do you think LeBron is going to leave Cleveland? I feel like he might jump ship ands go somewhere else because he’s chasing rings to try to surpass Jordan. The Rockets and the Sixers are looking pretty good. Or LA because I think the lakers are going to try to get LeBron and Kawhi, so he has options that are looking promising.

  • VM

    ??? Legendary

  • VM

    Please tell me you got my response.

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    I think Lebron was trying to be generous and help them get paid since they helped get the championship. That’s what friends are supposed to be for, to pull you through. But these dudes are so bad no one in the league will take them on. I think when JR’s contract is up his time will be up in the league. Tristian is clueless, he probably won’t see 5 years or he’ll be coming off the bench the rest of his career. Kris Humphries is coming off the bench in ATL right now. As far as Lebron leaving, I think if these new young kids play good, he’ll stay. I don’t think he wants to go to Lakers and start with a young bunch if he got his own young squad in CLE. Rockets, OKC looking good. I don’t think it’s a guarantee that GSW is going to the finals. If they run into OKC they not making it this year. Plus they’ve been hurt all year and the refs are tired of them running up in their faces. Especially Draymond.

  • Readytochokemothernatureout

    Nooooooo lol taketh him puhleeze!!!!!

  • VM

    I can respect the fact he was looking out for his homies, but at the minimum they could at least go the extra mile. I think they should be playing like Delladova did (not the dirty plays). It’s a shame when no other teams want you. I think you’re on point about JR and Tristan. JR hasn’t been the the same since that wrist injury. He plays like he’s checked out for an indefinite vacation. I thought Kris was playing in China somewhere because I haven’t seen him in action. I know it’s just one game with the new guys, they played really well together. And LeBron sat out the entire 4th quarter. So hopefully they will get better as they play more games together. I wonder what they will be once Love gets back. The old team couldn’t maintain anything while he rested. It’s going to be very interesting to see where this team will be when the playoffs start. I know Boston was missing some key pieces so I can’t run with it just yet. I think the Warriors will face some challenges because the Rockets will put up a fight if everyone is healthy. Steph ankles are fragile, he tweaked them in a previous game. Injuries can happen at any time and that alone can change the outcome. Russell still mad he told Durant I’m coming so they better watch out. You don’t think the Spurs will be in the mix if Kawhi make it back?

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    I agree. Even now analysts are questioning if GSW will come out of the west. The Rockets and OKC destroys them. Plus GSW stay pissing off the refs. I’m putting my money on OKC if they go up against GSW. With the Spurs, I don’t think Kawhi is happy. He keeps going to doctors and specialists and they all have cleared him to play, but he says he’s still feeling pain. Kinda like a back problem. You can’t see it on the x r ays, but the person still feels pain in their back. He also wants to leave SAS. I don’t think GSW will win this year. Call me crazy I know, but it’s kinda like karma is waiting for them. The way Zaza deliberately hurt Kawhi, the way Steph Curry pretended to take a dump on cleveland’s floor during the play offs, the way KD keeps getting in Russ Westbrooks face, the way they talk to refs, Igoudala and Livingston getting older and not able to do what they’ve been doing in previous years. They are very rude, entitled, and arrogant, and I just think they will get humbled this year. I don’t know if you saw the Cle and Celtics game, but JR did a slam. He said he wanted to let the new guys know what he can do. I think he feels like his position is in jeopardy. Chris Broussard and others are already saying Rodney Hood should start over JR, so I think JR will start showing up because he knows new younger talent is about to take his spot.

  • VM

    Well you know if they don’t come out of the west some will say the game is rigged because of how stacked Golden State is, there is no way they can lose with 6 possible hall of famers. I know their bench is a little weak but almost every player on that team can shoot. You may be on to something because if Melo doesn’t try to play hero ball or run down the court from the opposite end and jack up bad shots they can be a force to be reckon with. Melo needs to think before some of these shots he throw up. Team ball wins championships and I know he did say that he was trying to make some changes to his game for the sake of the team. They say Pop probably can convince Kawhi to stay like how he did with Aldridge. Any team that gets him it’s going to change from non contender to contender. I think Kawhi is a beast and is one of the top defenders in the league. I feel like that was a dirty play by Zaza, he intentionally slid his feet under Kawhi. The Spurs were making them work fin that game, and they had no answer for Kawhi. Durant is weak like butter left out at room temperature. I don’t remember Ms. Thing being this feisty in Oklahoma, and he has so much to say all the time. I love how Westbrook isn’t backing down. Steph irks my nerves, and the way to eliminate that bs they do to other teams is to beat and make them earn they keep. Put some of that pressure defense and take away a space they give them in the regular season. You’re right about the age thing because Cleveland was old and you need some fresh young legs on your team. Oh yes, I watched the game and I was enjoying the way they were playing together and these young fellas seem like they are hungrier than the old team. JR knows he can be next on the chopping block so them legs found some spry. JR dunk game use to real strong before age caught up with him. He was playing with more effort than he’s been playing with. I think Hood should start over him to because he is too streaky and he sulks if his shots are not going down. Impact the game another way, act like you know how to play some defense and hustle. I know they are only two games in, and they need more time to unlock their true potential. I want to see different line ups because LeBron does well with role players and to see what Lue comes up with. I remember back when he took GSW to six games and his next best player was Delladova.

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    Yep, you’re right! Delly and the whole squad was fighting. The difference is that back then Blatt was coaching. Ty Lue is not creative. He don’t adjust. He didn’t adjust during the playoffs last year. He just kept running the same thing. I would like to see Khawi go to CLE, but he may end up going to Boston.

  • VM

    Delladova was one of the guys applying defensive pressure to Steph. Lue is gonna have to do something different because he may not have job if they don’t win it this year. Lue is to busy trying not to hurt anyone’s feelings so he keeps starting the same lackluster lineups. They really could use Kawhi in Cleveland, that would give them the much needed rim protector and consistent numbers on the board and rebounds. This could be the key piece to move in closer on the GSW. If he goes to the Celtics that would definitely change up the east, and LeBron may leave and go to the Rockets or Sixers. What do you think what would lure Kawhi to Boston? I know Stevens is something special and he’s good at maximizing his players strengths, he’s like a Belichick 2.0 without the titles. What would happen to Love? Because I think he wants out because he wants to play for the Lakers. Isaiah is looking like they will be backing up a Geo Metro instead of a brinks truck.

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    In regards to Khawi, I was thinking he wouldn’t go to CLE because he doesn’t want to look like he’s riding Lebron’s coattails, so he would go to Boston because, even though they have Kyrie, Kyrie isn’t as big of a star as Lebron. Lebron is one of the greatest while Kyrie is still trying to become that. So going there would be a more competitive move, and he would be the bigger star over Kyrie. Also you could call them the big 3 Khawi, Kyrie and Hayward. But I would love to see him next to Lebron. As far as Lue goes, he sucks. He kept JR in the starting line up because he said he didn’t want to give up on him and his shot. Newsflash: JR could’ve come off the bench until his shot came back. To keep him in a spot like that when there are so many better people that want and could use the spot brings the team down, morale down, and makes the locker room toxic because they are losing and the coach won’t change for the better of the team. I think the reason he doesn’t change is not to be loyal to JR, he just doesn’t have any new ideas. And Isiah is just a mess. He needs to stop talking and taking jabs at past people and organizations. It’s a business and a job. No one wants a blabber mouth on their squad.

  • VM

    I can definitely understand where you’re coming from in reference to Kawhi picking Boston over Cleveland. Makes me wonder if there will be enough points going around for the big three. Kyrie needs the ball to be more effective and I agree he dribbles entirely to much. The guy got handles sicker than A.I. I think father time will start to catch up with LeBron because he has lost a few steps already. I feel like he wouldn’t mind handing over the “keys” to a hungrier trustworthy partner. He is one of the most prolific passers in the game and doesn’t mind sharing the spotlight. It takes me back to his time in Miami when Wade wasn’t ready to hand over the keys to LeBron. That encounter alone will help to let them go when its time. Kyrie jump the gun a little to soon, he has a history of wanting to be the man and never sniffed the playoffs when he was the man. They say he was salty when LeBron came back to Cleveland. He doesn’t get along with other star payers who might outshine him, hence Cleveland trading away some players to keep him happy. Lol, I need to email that newsflash to Lue. Well you know JR is one of Lebron’s boys so Lue is hesistate to pull him when he’s not playing. JR shot is broken 80% of the time. I agree with you it’s not worth the risk because it is a morale killer. I believe Blatt would be doing a better job with being creative. He doesn’t know how make the team excel out of his afraid to make change habit. He hasn’t been a factor all year long, it’s time to try someone in his place because the new guys need that clutch experience. I didn’t know he was sir talk a lot, he always has something to say. It’s showing that Stevens was the brains behind his game in Boston. You haven’t won anything along with can’t play defense. I thought he was alright but he’s just an obnoxious player who believes he’s little Kobe. Shut up and play, he suffers from little man syndrome. No team keeps him for more than 3 years. He was pissed about the comments Rondo made about the Celtics shouldn’t be honoring him. Actions speak louder than words.

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    Agree 100 percent. Lebron got about 4 more good playing years left. I think he will retire at year 20 just to round it off. Kyrie never got them to playoffs or a title without Lebron. At least Lebron won two games without Kyrie and Love that first playoff run. Kyrie has yet to do that. He couldn’t even let Lebron rest. Lebron got a sorry coach, a sorry starting line-up, and he’s still out here balling out of his mind. I think Kyrie want to be the next Kobe who is his idol, but I think he’s missing some of the things that made Kobe great. Isaiah Thomas has a HUGE ego. But the Lakers are 0-3 with him playing there. He’s a liability outside of Brad Stevens system.

  • VM

    Right, Lebron has to play a hard every game if he wants the team to win. That has to be frustrating to be the only one that makes a difference on the court. Coach Lue thinks that they need to sprint up and down the court to control the pace of the game. Lebron needs to be surrounded by players who can make their shots. He draws the defense toward him and that frees up the teammate to shoot. Kyrie hasn’t done nothing but dribble dribble run down the shot clock and then shoot, that tactic has been proven to ineffective. Kyrie has a long way to go before he gets to Kobe level. I think he’s jealous of Lebron. He’s injury prone, his basketball IQ needs some work. He can be selfish and self-centered. For example the pass to Hayward was not the proper play, he was surrounded by two guys and as a result he got inured. I’m not saying it was intentional. The new guys were able to maintain the lead when Lebron rested. The guys that were traded was a mess, it was to many egos and can you believe Isaiah thought he was on the same level with Lebron. Isaiah needs to eat a king size slice of humble pie. The Lakers are already poor on defense and Isaiah makes it worse, he doesn’t play defense at all. The dude is always runnng around and falling all over the place. You have to prove your point when you’re on the court and you’re not in the position to be calling teammates out when they miss a game. Steven had him looking like a MVP candidate, his teammates were there to save him on defense. I think playing through injury is going to cost him in value, I don’t think he will ever be the same.

  • VM

    I apologize for being long winded, I enjoy talking about sports, next time I will be brief.

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    LOL!!!! No worries, as you see I do too.

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    Yep! Everything you said. I totally agree.

  • VM

    Lol. Well that’s alright. Have You been watching the games lately? I’m a bit disappointed in them and I don’t see love making a difference when he comes back. Lue don’t have a clue on how to maximize the talent on the roster. Oh and I think Toronto is going to be a problem for them because they are playing bog time. I know its just the regular season so I better reconsider that.
