Cleveland's first deal will garner the most headlines because of the names involved. The Lakers are a young and promising franchise with great young talent and now some veteran presence in Isaiah Thomas and Channing Frye. But since returning from rehabilitation of a hip injury, Thomas has been inconsistent.
Clarkson averages 14.5 points per game on 45 percent shooting. The Cavs were 7-8 when Thomas returned.
Minutes later, they acquired scoring swingman Rodney Hood from Utah and point guard George Hill from Sacramento in a 3-team trade, before trading Dwyane Wade to Miami for a second-round pick. After playing with legendary Laker guard Kobe Bryant his rookie year, he will now play with future Hall of Famer LeBron James. Nance provides an athletic finisher that will no doubt feast on LeBron-led fast breaks.
Thomas and Frye will be free agents after the season.
As the Thomas swap was being digested around the league, the Cavs completed a three-team deal with Utah and Sacramento, said a person with direct knowledge of Cleveland's moves. He shot 46.9 percent from the field, 45.3 percent from three-point range and 77.8 percent from the free-throw line with the Kings.
In total, the Cavs sent out six players who had been on the roster since training camp to acquire four new players and give the team an entirely new look.
The deal does carry financial ramifications for Cleveland.
There's also something about Thomas that needs to be addressed. Wing players with size, speed and shooting are valued commodities in the National Basketball Association. The Cavs tried to incorporate him into their offense, but it was forced and bogging them down.
He ranked as the fourth-most efficient players * a href="https://stats.nba.com/players/transition/?Season=2016-17&SeasonType=Regular%20Season&PerMode=Totals&sort=PPP&dir=1&CF=Poss*GE*65" target="_blank" rel="noopener" *(1.40 points per possession) among those with as many opportunities when running a transition offense last season. Clarkson is just more durable, better finishing around the rim on drives and a bigger catch-and-shoot threat in an offense that thrives from swinging the ball around to shooters or kicking it out to shooters after perimeter penetration.
