The Cavaliers Reportedly Offered Isaiah Thomas & Tristan Thompson for DeAndre Jordan

So, from Kyrie Irving to Isaiah Thomas to Lou Williams

Yesterday, rumors surfaced that the Cleveland Cavaliers are contemplating trading Isaiah Thomas. Since acquiring him over the summer, I.T. has been sidelined with his hip-injury; and just started team practice scrimmaging two weeks ago. His targeted debut for the season is set to likely occur in early January, which seems awkward that his name has been included in talks.

The reported trade would also include Tristan Thompson and the Brooklyn Nets pick, for DeAndre Jordan, Lou Williams and something else (draft pick or cap gap). With the Cavs lacking a sold rim protector, LeBron James has been vocal about the team acquiring DeAndre from Los Angeles.

However, Cavaliers ownership is hesitant to make this deal happen, with King James not willing to agree to long-term contract extension before his pending 2018 free agency.

The growing belief with executives and general managers is that LeBron will end up with the Los Angeles Lakers; but the Houston Rockets are also on the top of his list.

We’re just curious why the Cavaliers would want to trade Isaiah Thomas this fast, after not even seeing him play a single second with the team this year. Let us know in the comments what you think of this proposed deal, that could still happen before the deadline in a few weeks.
