Cavaliers GM has strong reason for deadline deals

Big shot LeBron's jumper at buzzer gives Cavs 140-138 win Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published broadcast rewritten or redistributed

"From the outside, they're not a free-agent destination team if LeBron leaves, especially with Kyrie gone".

Cleveland Cavaliers receive: Jordan Clarkson, Larry Nance, Jr. "I think we need to do things harder". We were reminded of that again Thursday when he made six players disappear from the Cleveland Cavaliers' roster. For reference, the league average usage rate is about 20 percent-Thomas is at 29 percent in his abysmal 15 games in Cleveland.

That was followed soon with news that they would send out forward Jae Crowder and former MVP Derrick Rose to the Utah Jazz and Iman Shumpert and a protected second round pick to the Sacramento Kings. "We were really anxious that what was going on on the floor and sort of our culture in the building that we were marching a slow death", Altman said. I wish the best for him in L.A. right now and his future. Hill and Clarkson fix those issues with their better length, youth and athleticism over Thomas and Wade. He missed Cleveland's first 36 games while coming back from a torn right labrum that knocked him out of last year's playoffs.

"I want Isaiah to get his bounce back, get his spring back, get healthy", James said.

Elsewhere, the Pistons, already huge trade winners by landing Blake Griffin, got two subtle pieces: point guard Jameer Nelson from the Bulls for center Willie Reed, who is now suspended for domestic abuse and likely to be waived, and forward James Ennis from the Grizzlies for Brice Johnson and a second-rounder. I want to have us be in the play-offs, and the only path to that is to add to the roster that we already have.

While this caveat limits the longevity of this plan, head coach Luke Walton doesn't see an issue with the latest move from the front office, hopeful to get Thomas and Channing Frye on the floor as soon as possible.

You might say any team with LeBron is always in that conversation. "We had a chance to really look at that over the past month or so and address that fit". Crowder followed suit on Friday morning.

"I said, 'Is this fair for Dwyane?"

Rand Paul was right
Paul objected each time until Cornyn, the majority whip, accused him of "wasting everybody's time and inconveniencing the staff". Republican Senator Mitch McConnell announced the plan following extensive negotiations with Democratic Senator Chuck Schumer .

SpaceX engine production and rocket capacity
The company said it's "systematically addressing" production bottlenecks that have plagued the Model 3. They hit a new record-28,425 units combined-growing 28% compared to the same quarter past year .

Real face Sociedad with one eye on PSG showdown
I don't know if there will be or not but at the moment there are no offers on the table for either player since the summer. Real Madrid are ready to cut their losses and sell Isco - and Liverpool are set to pounce for the talented playmaker.

"We can create a culture here that everyone can be a part of", Altman said.

The Cavaliers made sure of that.

LeBron has property in Los Angeles - like every other big star in the National Basketball Association - and has his eyes in moving to the entertainment business as he continues to age.

"I would put it from 50-50 a week ago to now, something like 75-25 that he stays".

Out of the two, Wade is the real victor of his trade as he gets to go back to the team that he loves the most in the Heat, where he will likely finish his career. Being around him the last 24 hours has been great. You'd think that would be bad, but while the Cavs got better, they may have actually lowered their ceiling. Altman feels the trades will rejuvenate James.

By adding some younger, more athletic players in the backcourt around LeBron James, the Cavaliers might have gained the type of boost they needed to win the conference. "I see him all the time". He was also not a favorite in the locker room.

Tuesday the Jazz shipped out Rodney Hood and Joe Johnson in a three-team trade with the Cavaliers and Kings.
