This Isaiah Thomas-Cavs 'Tribute Video' Is Hilarious, Incredibly Sad

Jordan Clarkson

Thomas played for Washington from 2008-11, averaging 16.4 points and 4.0 assists per game in three seasons.

"We definitely have a real chance to win an National Basketball Association championship and I want to be a part of that".

Isaiah Thomas' stint with the Cleveland Cavaliers was over before it started.

Without Thomas there, we are reinforcing the possibility that this is the changing of the guard in the East.

So what are the Cavaliers getting in Jordan Clarkson?

This does not take the Cavaliers out of contention, because they got two solid players in return. It was quickly assumed that Thomas would be bought out by the Lakers, but Ramona Shelburne of ESPN reported that L.A. meant to keep both Thomas and Frye.

Earlier this year, Thomas requested that the Boston Celtics hold off on playing a video tribute to their former star because he wouldn't be playing in the game (which the Cavs lost).

"He's worked too hard to get back, and he's a ball dominant player", said Thomas' agent, Aaron Goodwin. Hopefully Clarkson and Nance Jr. make immediate and lasting impacts for this Cavaliers team and can provide LeBron the support he needs in order to win his fourth finals title in his career. Who knows how long it could take for him to start getting back to the way he played past year.

The Los Angeles Lakers, needing to shed salary for summer free agency, had been hopeful of waiting until the end of the season to move Jordan Clarkson - owed $26 million beyond this season - but there's a mutual desire to find something sooner than later.

While Thursday was a fairly big day for the Los Angeles Lakers as it pertains to this season, Magic Johnson insists the work is not done just yet.
