In a shocking move, the Cleveland Cavaliers have traded Dwyane Wade to the Miami Heat. Hopefully, they got the approval of LeBron James before this happened.
This was yet another move by a Cavs organization that did some serious roster overhauling at the NBA trade deadline.
Moments prior to this report surfacing, another was made that stated the Cavaliers would be sending Isaiah Thomas to the Los Angeles Lakers. For that deal, Cleveland is sending Thomas, Channing Frye and its (NOT Brooklyn’s) first-round pick to Los Angeles in exchange for Larry Nance and Jordan Clarkson.
But wait… there’s more!
There was even more prior to this blockbuster.
Cleveland just got a lot younger, more dynamic, and maybe got rid of the chemistry issue Thomas appeared to be bringing to the table. How LeBron James will react to this is a big deal, but Nance is an underrated talent and Clarkson, who has show flashes, should fit in relatively well with the Cavs.
This has been a complete and total roster overhaul by the Cleveland Cavaliers. Maybe as last ditch attempt to get younger, better defensively and plan for both LeBron James maybe leaving or possibly staying.
Either way, the NBA trade deadline is not done with us yet.
The Cavs are no longer the Cavs at this point.
