Acquired from the Orlando Magic at the National Basketball Association trade deadline two years ago, Frye played in 144 games for the Cavs over the span of three seasons, averaging 7.5 points and 1.5 3-point makes per game.

First of all, there are a lot of different directions this trade could go.

Butler scored 35, and Karl-Anthony Towns had 30 for the Timberwolves, who were in position to win in OT before James came to Cleveland's rescue.

Tacoma native Isaiah Thomas will have his University of Washington jersey raised to the rafters, with a little delay. It is a little disappointing that we will never get to see what a healthy, streaking Isaiah Thomas could have been alongside LeBron and company, but it was apparent that IT just did not fit in the wine and gold.

"He's worked too hard to get back, and he's a ball dominant player", he said. Maybe it's a move that makes LeBron James happy.

On the Lakers side, it gets really interesting for the Celtics. Obviously, this much roster turnover in the middle of the season is a risky move, but for Cleveland, it may prove to be exactly what the team needed.

The Coen Brothers chose Mahoney for the role of WP Mayhew in Barton Fink (1992) because of his resemblance to William Faulkner . He moved to the United States at 19, becoming a US citizen in 1959 and settled in IL under his sister's sponsorship.

Meanwhile, the Lakers acquire two expiring contracts in Thomas and Frye.

George Hill: Hill seems likely to be the starting point guard in Cleveland, after battling to get minutes for the youth-oriented Kings. Cleveland doesn't have the defensive talent to hide Thomas on that end of the court, and with his scoring and efficiency both trending in the wrong direction he was hurting the team when he was on the court.

The Lakers need to figure out how to make these pieces work together now, and they have to figure out how the Lonzo Ball/Thomas dynamic is going to work. "We can't talk about specific players' names". Even if he will never be quite as good, he can still be the best player on this Lakers team by a wide margin. And they kept the coveted Brooklyn Nets' pick.

Unfortunately, Johnson and the Lakers were not able to unload what is remaining on the four-year, $72 million contract they signed Luol Deng to back in the summer of 2016. The Cavs traded six players, including Thomas, Dwyane Wade and Derrick Rose, and two future draft picks in moves created to not only help them in the short term but could potentially help keep LeBron James beyond this season. Cleveland's first-round pick will take a little less than $2 million off the total, but that roughly $13 million is absolutely massive for a team looking to clear cap space for this summer.

But it was the Lakers' deal with the Cavaliers that caught everyone by surprise.
