Cleveland Cavaliers' 2018 NBA Finals Odds Improve After Trade Deadline


In Travis' estimation, the Cavs still need to make a splash move in the offseason in order to retain James.

Travis: [Rodney] Hood is a really dynamic scorer who can put the ball in the basket a lot of different ways.

CLEVELAND- The Cleveland Cavaliers were busy hours before the National Basketball Association trade deadline on Thursday, sending six players to four teams.

Of course, the taunts come after Cleveland basically became a new team at the trade deadline. This Isaiah Thomas trade proved to be the biggest of the NBA Trade Deadline.

US House passes spending bill, ending brief government shutdown
She received a standing ovation when she walked into a caucus dinner Wednesday night, but some Democratic lawmakers said Mrs. Friday after lawmakers missed the midnight deadline, triggering the shutdown. "I want people to feel uncomfortable".

While we're considering the potential downsides of Thursday's Cavs deals, it should be noted that all of this could fail. For the Clippers, this process actually began with the trading of Chris Paul, the first non-drafted Clipper to give legitimacy to the franchise. "IT has had a difficult and very challenging basketball journey over the a year ago as he has worked extremely hard to make progress in his return to play". "The trade deadline is always a hard time for everybody".

As the dust settles, it appears that Koby Altman has built a team that is engineered around LeBron James and what he does best. Compounding this issue was the ineffectiveness of players on larger contracts, an overall aging roster, and Isaiah Thomas' complaints.

"All the chaos that was being made about them this and them that, I don't see that". Does this somehow, in a backward way, drive LeBron even closer to LA in the future? James isn't going to create that type of distraction while the team is still playing.

Several players were quick to react to the blockbuster trades. Derrick Rose returned from injury.

The 21-year-old Simmons is enjoying a strong rookie campaign with averages of 16.6 points, 7.8 rebounds and 7.2 assists per game.

The team has reached the NBA Finals in each of the last three years and was a favorite to get back there at the start of this season, but things haven't gone as planned the past few weeks. "The roster needed to be reshaped and I am fine with it. Cleveland was able to keep F Cedi Osman and the Brooklyn Nets' pick". LeBron is a free agent after this season, and no one truly knows where he's going to land.

Korver, 36, more than made up for a short bench. The best examples of this are the Los Angeles Lakers and Boston Celtics. However, the Lakers fan base either seemed to loved the deal or was unsure of the deal; not many fans hated the trade.

The Cavs shipped Thomas, forward Channing Frye and one of their 2018 first-round picks to the Lakers for point guard Jordan Clarkson and forward Larry Nance Jr., two athletic 25-year-olds who can potentially be part of Cleveland's core for years to come. The team sent some of medical staff to Atlanta in hopes of completing physicals before Friday's game, but it's unlikely any of the new additions will play until Sunday in Boston. Instead, they stood pat and prepared for their eventual pursuit of Anthony Davis next season reasoning that no small moves would make a difference this season. That is nearly certainly not going to be the team's starting five once the postseason rolls around, but it was a way to get through the evening.
