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.
