The Cleveland Cavaliers decided that it was time to make some changes by the trade deadline. Cleveland traded Isaiah Thomas and Channing Frye to the Lakers for Jordan Clarkson and Larry Nance Jr. Now in this trade the Cavaliers got younger, but at what expense. I really liked Channing Frye and I hope Isaiah Thomas gets back to his old self. Only time will tell if that happens.
The Cavaliers also got rid of Jae Crowder, Derrick Rose, Dwayne Wade and Iman Stumper as well. In these trades the Cavaliers got a pick from the Miami Heat for Wade and they got George Hill and Rodney Hood from the Kings and Jazz. Will this be enough to get the Cavaliers back to the NBA Finals?
I will be honest the Cavaliers got a lot younger, but in reality that is really all they did. They traded away around the same scoring they got in return. It will be interesting to see how this all works out. Mostly these trade were done to appease Lebron James and get him some help. Losing is something James hate, so now he will have no excuses as he got rid of guys he thought was not a good fit.
