Cavs Send Thomas, Frye, Pick to Lakers for Clarkson, Nance

In the first big move of deadline day, the Lakers traded Jordan Clarkson and Larry Nance Jr.to the Cavs for Isaiah Thomas, Channing Frye and Cleveland's own 2018 first-round pick.

Last week official figures revealed that the disease has become a bigger killer than breast cancer for the first time. The researchers gave mice with breast cancer an enzyme that prevents the production of the amino acid asparagine.


In a series of shocking trades, the Cleveland Cavaliers traded half of its roster in about the span of an hour just before the NBA's trade deadline. Taking on that kind of money and ponying up a pick seems less likely, despite how well Carroll has played this season. His father, James Thomas, grew up in Los Angeles and, according to Sports Illustrated, bet a friend that if the Lakers lost the 1989 NBA Finals to Detroit he would name his son after Pistons star Isiah Thomas.

Following the win, Thomas expressed his desire not to get traded again. He was an NBA All-Star in 2016 and '17. Thomas was the Pac-10 Tournament MVP in 2010 and '11. The Sacramento Kings dealt him to the Phoenix Suns in July 2014. Until then, sure, the Lakers could play him with starters to provide a little scoring punch, but when the team is fully healthy, his ideal role is that of a scorer off the bench.

Thomas was electric for the Boston Celtics last season, ranking third in the entire National Basketball Association in scoring with 28.9 points per game.

Nance averages 8.6 points and 6.8 rebounds per game. He's also shooting a solid 46 percent from the field. The Lakers and first-year general manager Rob Pelinka untie themselves from long-term commitments - namely to Clarkson - that could have prevented the flexibility to add James or Paul George, two of the top potential free agents this summer. The hope in Cleveland is that LeBron stays for the rest of his career, but the Lakers could offer a serious deal to LeBron which might be too good to pass up on. The Lakers will also receive a protected first-round pick. The team is starting to learn how to play off one another and this run has to be impressive considering most of the rotation is players under 25 years old, along with the constant trade chatter that they've endured.
