The Cavaliers made big moves just hours before the NBA trade deadline on Wednesday. General Manager Koby Altman will join Bill Wills and Mike Snyder Friday at 8:20 a.m. to break down the three trades and what it means for the team moving forward.
The Cavs will be sent Isaiah Thomas, Channing Frye, and the Cavs’ first-round draft pick to the Los Angeles Lakers for Jordan Clarkson, and Larry Nance Jr.
In a three team deal, the Utah Jazz traded Rodney Hood to the Cavs, Utah will send Joe Johnson to Sacramento, and the Cavs will send Jae Crowder and Derek Rose to Utah. The Kings will send George Hill to the Cavs.
I've talked to quite a few players in the last 30 minutes, asking for their thoughts on the trades. Nearly every player said to keep an eye on Rodney Hood in Cleveland. Hood's peers really respect his game. The general consensus is that he'll be a difference-maker for the Cavs.— Alex Kennedy (@AlexKennedyNBA) February 8, 2018
And, in a separate deal, the Cavs sent Iman Shumpert to the Kings.
Finally, Dwyane Wade has been dealt to the Miami Heat in exchange for a second-round protected draft pick.
Newsradio WTAM 1100 is the home of the Cavs. The next game on the radio is Friday, February 9th at 7:30 p.m. when they take on the Hawks in Atlanta.
