WOW..

 

 

The Los Angeles Lakers have agreed to trade Jordan Clarkson and Larry Nance Jr. to the Cleveland Cavaliers for Isaiah Thomas, Channing Frye and their own 2018 first round pick.

Clarkson is owed $12.5 million in 18-19 and $13.4 million in 19-20. Clarkson is averaging 14.6 points in 23.7 minutes per game this season for the Lakers. The move clears cap space for the Lakers, which they could use on LeBron James.

The Cavaliers acquired Thomas in the Kyrie Irving trade, but he's been a problematic element for the team both on and off the court.

Cleveland cannot trade Brooklyn's 2018 first round pick until after the draft due to the Stepien rule.

Said it in the other thread but I really think this was a well thought out move.

 

We just shed some salary going into this off season and next, and we got a 1st round pick.

 

I'll miss those guys but they were not integral to our future.

And he's about to get paid by us IMO.

 

Edit: Assuming he makes it past the deadline that is.

IT off the bench.

 

I don't believe IT is going to be apart of our team next season. This was a salary dump for the most part.

I KNOW!!!! STILL dont you have some sympthay in letting go of these players??

I mean i liked JCs attitude and his style and he always brought us fire off the bench and nance was always a hustler..

 

I know its for salary and we probably get 46 mil. but still.. it sucks

 

With this trade the Lakers clear cap space to make a run at a major free agent like LeBron James this summer. Clarkson is under contract through 2019-20, and Nance's deal runs through 2018-19.

Praying for  1. Some Cohesion (Ill fitting parts with young bucks, new guys, and those playing for next contracts may muck things up all season) 2. Better Coaching, No More Tanking (Last season was more of the latter but not sure how much of the former we can count on. Walton with something to prove this season as much as any Laker player) 3. Rookie Watch (Hoping Lonzo outshines his daddy (ROTY??), and Kuzma finds minutes and makes a push for all rook 2nd team)

READY FOR SEASON!!!
