Cleveland is sending Isaiah Thomas and Channing Frye to the Lakers for Clarkson and Nance, league source tells ESPN.
As shocking as the Isaiah Thomas deal was, the Cavs went nuts and also traded Dwyane Wade to the Heat.
Cleveland is trading Dwyane Wade to Miami, league sources tell ESPN.
As Cleveland remade its roster with young, athletic wing players, organization gave him a chance to return home to Miami and worked out a deal to send him back to the Heat, league sources tell ESPN.
Miami will send a heavily protected second-round pick to Cleveland for Wade, league sources tell ESPN.
Sources: As part of three-team deal, Cleveland sends 2020 second-round pick via Miami to Sacramento.
I have no idea what the fuck is going on here but the Cavs are going through a fire sale right before our eyes. This is insane.
Update: According to Brian Windhorst, Wade asked for a trade when the team planned to reduce his minutes.
The Cavs coaching staff was considering reducing Dwyane Wade’s playing time and he’s been agitating for a return “home” to Miami in the future, sources said. Both fixed.
