Isaiah Thomas Traded To Lakers
The Cavaliers on Thursday traded Isaiah Thomas and forward Channing Frye to the Lakers for guard Jordan Clarkson and forward Larry Nance Jr., sources told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.
Cleveland also sent a protected 2018 first-round pick to the Lakers.
The deal was accepted just hours before the NBA's 3 p.m. trade deadline.
The Celtics in August traded Thomas to Cleveland along with Jae Crowder, Ante Zizic and a 2018 unprotected Brooklyn Nets first-round pick for All-Star guard Kyrie Irving.
After rehabbing from a hip injury, Thomas played just 15 games for the Cavs. He averaged just 14.7 points per game on 36 percent shooting as Cleveland went 7-8 with Thomas in the lineup.
Thomas earlier this week said that he was tired of being traded and wanted to stay with Cleveland.
The 5-foot-9 guard was traded from Sacramento to Phoenix in 2014. The Suns traded him to Boston in 2015.
