After whirlwind day, LeBron excited by Cavs' additions

After whirlwind day, LeBron excited by Cavs' additions

In the hours before Thursday's trading deadline, the Cavs unloaded six players, including Isaiah Thomas and Dwyane Wade, James' best friend, in three separate deals created to make the team younger, more athletic and as general manager Koby Altman put it, to revitalize a team he felt was "marching a slow death". General manager Koby Altman wanted to revitalize an aging team he felt was "marching a slow death" and not fulfilling its potential as a title contender. "We got to figure it out". A lot of action.

"It wasn't tough. We're both 15 years in the league".

It's nearly impossible to exceed LeBron James' lofty expectations.

Cleveland added guards George Hill and Jordan Clarkson as well as forwards Larry Nance Jr. and Rodney Hood, and all will have to take a crash course in Cavaliers 101.

With an unexpected flurry of moves before the National Basketball Association trade deadline, the Cavs unloaded six players to change their identity and culture while moving back into title contention.

Hood and Hill were able to participate in the Cavs' full practice, as everyone else involved in their three-team trade had already been processed in Sacramento and Utah. George Hill brought his steady veteran skill set as the only new player to start for Cleveland; joining LeBron James, J.R. Smith, Cedi Osman and Tristan Thompson to open the game. It's how it's suppose to be.

"LeBron is No. 1, and then after that, it's going to be, you know, different guys on different nights".

Wade was one of James' closest friends who came to Cleveland just to be reunited with his former Miami Heat running mate. More troubling to Altman was the sense that the Cavs were miserable, disconnected and on a self-destructive path.

"That's not a good thing", Thomas said Wednesday.


The massive makeover is meant to help the Cavs make another title run in 2018 with James, who can opt out of his $35.6 million contract this summer and become a free agent. For his part, Monroe was asked whether he thinks Boston has enough talent to get back to the East finals this season.

DEBUT. Jordan Clarkson in his first game as #8 of the Cleveland Cavaliers. "I feel like over the last three games of playing some of these teams, they've made some adjustments since the last time we've played them". "This trade really puts some wind in our sails".

NBA Twitter was in shambles this week after the Cleveland Cavaliers traded away some key pieces of their team amid a period of struggle for the Eastern Conference champs.

The most controversial moves involved Thomas and Wade.

"I'm exhausted of being traded". "That's not a good thing". Nothing against Markieff. I just don't want to get into the whole whether it was a foul or not. I like it here. "I definitely wish all six guys. the best".

Lue also plans to adjust his starting front court based on matchups for the remainder of the season, especially while Kevin Love is sidelined with a broken left hand. For a second there, they were just trying to get him shots, trying to get him shots.

Cleveland is just 7-13 since Christmas Day, and the club's slide has coincided with Thomas' comeback.

James ended his night with 22 points, a whopping 17 assists and 12 rebounds. "One of the best to do it, so I tip my hat to him". "I don't want to get fined".

If you are a fan of the Pistons, you have certainly heard it before.
