Worse, they've looked disinterested, frustrated and as if they couldn't stand each other.

It will be very interesting for both teams to see what they will do next because, at this moment, we have at least 3 teams who are better than them: the Golden State Warriors, Houston Rockets, and Boston Celtics. George Hill meanwhile should prove that his stint with the Kings wasn't indicative of him as a player and I expect him to return to form as he presumably steps into Thomas' place in the starting lineup. The Cavaliers were at a point where they could not look worse, and this was looking like the best opportunity to get past James in the East in nearly a decade. I don't want to be on the outside of the playoffs looking in.

George Hill came from Sacramento and Rodney Hood from Utah as the Cavaliers dealt away Rose, Wade, Jae Crowder and Iman Shumpert - changing almost half their rotation.

Two had fallen out of the rotation (Shumpert and Frye), two had lost a step and are in the waning minutes of their National Basketball Association career (Rose and Wade), and the last two (Thomas, Crowder) were constant reminders of how bad Cleveland took it on the chin in the Irving trade. It also helps that Hill has spent most of his career playing alongside an All-Star in the backcourt, such as Paul George in IN and Gordon Hayward in Utah.

Hill is shooting 45.3 percent from three-point range.

Cavs trade Dwyane Wade to Heat for second-round pick.

Clarkson: The 6-foot-5 guard is making $11.56 million this season, and is on the books for $12.5 million and $13.44 million the following two seasons.

"Coach Lue called up a great play", James said. Love you my guy!

Cavs working on getting 3rd team for DeAndre Jordan deal
He's a difference-maker, for sure, but he might not be enough on his own to take a team to contention status. Finally, Jordan's expiring contract was appealing to teams looking to clear cap space.

A huge change swept through the Cleveland Cavaliers on Thursday-shocking fans and players across the board.

You empowered Koby Altman to make a series of shrewd trades that will seemingly infuse some much-needed youth and energy into this team. Reports suggest LeBron James, if he opts out of his contract, and/or Paul George.

This trade saves the Raptors nearly $1 million in cap space, which could come in handy if they pursue a player who gets bought out in the coming weeks.

What they do with Julius Randle will be interesting as well, since he's really picked up his play this season. "I need to bring in fountains and I think that's what we did", Altman said, adding the younger players can rejuvenate All-Star forward LeBron James.

Fellow veteran forwards Mario Belinelli, who missed two games pending a possible trade, and Ersan Illyasova stayed put, with Illyasova exercising his right to reject a deal not to his liking. Caboclo has barely played for them since being a first-round pick in 2014, spending a lot of time in the G League.

Thomas seemed to sense his odd stay in Cleveland was over.

Cleveland lost 116-98 at Orlando on Tuesday, scoring only nine points in the fourth quarter, but bounced back for a 140-138 overtime victory at home over the Minnesota Timberwolves on James' buzzer-beating jumper the next night. "Business is business. I'm off to the Lakers - it happens", Frye said in his farewell Instagram post.
