And that's been one of our biggest problems all year, is adjusting.

Still related to Irving, the report said that James was not informed that the former had already been dealt with the Celtics. Though the question about Thomas being a point guard to remain for the long run and not just a rental, brings plenty of questions. The Cavs essentially gave up on Thomas after he played only 15 games following a 7?-month layoff because of a torn labrum in his right hip. "I commend him for trying to come back and give us the help we needed because we were struggling at the time". "He was very special". Especially Iman, who also leaves as a champion and was another part of a special group that earned success at the highest level here.

"I wish the best for him in L.A. right now and his future". "That's part of the game". Time will tell, and all eyes are on them.

However, wasn't ready to lift his self-imposed TV ban.

"We were really anxious that what was going on the floor and sort of our culture in the building that we were marching a slow death and we didn't want to be a part of that", he said on a conference call.

Shortly after the deal, Thomas' agent Aaron Goodwin texted ESPN's Rachel Nichols that his client "IS NOT COMING OFF THE BENCH", leading Nichols to suggest Thomas could seek a buyout if Lakers coach Luke Walton sought to use him off the bench. Chinese big man Zhou Qi has managed only 14 outings (averaging little more than five minutes per appearance) for Houston Rockets, while Brooklyn Nets' Jeremy Lin, who is of Taiwanese descent, suffered a season-ending injury on the opening night of the 2017-18 season.

Nance was a boost to the Lakers' defense, improving his team's defensive rating by nearly two points when playing his 22 minutes per game.

If I'm a Cavaliers fan this morning, I'm actually generally excited in seeing this new NEW team-Cavs 2.0-and will not miss the lack of energy and effort on defense, questionable and selfish ball-handling and bad shot selections by some of the departed.

Cleveland made 21 3-pointers as the clubs combined to hit an NBA-record 40. One, he injects more speed into an already-quick Lakers offense, now first in the league in pace, ahead of the champion Golden State Warriors. Crowder's father, Corey, appeared in 51 games with the Jazz during the 1991-92 season, totaling 120 points, 44 rebounds and 18 assists. He joins Michael Jordan and Kevin Garnett as the only players to lead their respective franchises in all three categories.

By sundown, until the new guys start to trickle in, you could have fit what was left of the Cavs in a mini-van and still had room for all those who feel the results of the Thursday Afternoon Massacre instantly make the Cavs the favorites to go back to The Finals, fall behind 3-1 to the Warriors, then rally to win it all again.

The 2018 National Basketball Association trade deadline ended up being extremely active, despite the fact that some of the biggest names rumored to be available weren't dealt. What is important, though, is that Hill will probably play more without the ball. "The impact that he's having on winning". He has been cajoling Cavs management to get more two-way players to compete with the Golden State Warriors and the latter finally heard him. Thibodeau understands the mental and physical grind for coaches, and expressed concern about "s well-being".

"I'm exhausted of being traded", he said.
