Cavs were marching a slow death before trades — Cleveland GM Altman

Both Thomas and Frye will be free agents after this season. While Clarkson and Nance were both playing very well, they are getting two players that can fill in. Thomas said this week that he was sick of being traded and wanted to stay with Cleveland. When they connect, perhaps Walton's advice to his newest player should be this: Rent, don't buy. For the last month, they have been one of the best teams in the National Basketball Association record-wise, and they will try to keep that up with some new faces. No, they didn't land a superstar.
It's clear as day that the Cleveland Cavaliers are not the same team they were 12 months ago, and they're definitely not the same team they were two years ago. And the Cavs can play faster now too. "We were really anxious about what was going on on the floor and with our culture in the building". The Cavaliers might be in the unenviable position of knowing that they helped service their own demise. He's athletic, he can shoot it, he can defend and he's way better than [Jae] Crowder.
Now, the Cavs can pair Hood and Hill with James, Thompson and Nance; Love will slot in when he returns from injury, with Clarkson and Smith coming in off the bench.
"We addressed the culture", Altman said as he described how he lamented how visible "the lack of energy and enthusiasm" from the team had become to everyone inside and outside of the organization. And [Jordan] Clarkson is a microwave; he's instant offense. I hope Isaiah turns the whole thing around. But I just want to be where I'm wanted. 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.
John Schuhmann: I could change my mind come April 14, but right now, I see the East as wide open, with no "team to beat". Memphis was the biggest disappointment, in my opinion. "Business is business. I'm off to the Lakers - it happens", Frye said in his farewell Instagram post. "They may be the long-term victor". The Denver Nuggets brought in Devin Harris and sent out Emmanuel Mudiay in a three-team trade with NY that landed Doug McDermott in Dallas. People who don't know Joe don't realize the huge impact he'll have on whichever team he joins.
If Isaiah Thomas had somehow captured his form from past year, there was a chance to Cavs would have challenged the Lakers. "Man, I feel bad for him".
Thomas: The guard whose fall from grace was as swift as nearly any you'll see became just another expiring contract, at $6.26 million. They're going to be tough to guard. Many expected the Cavs to try and make a move for Deandre Jordan or Kemba Walker deals that can still be done within the hour, but no one expected this.
Just based on nERD, the trades are an enormous win for Cleveland. But one thing is for sure the Cavs got much younger and much better today for now and maybe for the future.
The biggest concerns with Hill are that he has dealt with a number of injuries in the past, and he's in the first year of a three-year contract worth $57 million.
To understand why, let's take a closer look at what each players brings to the table for the Cavaliers. It'll be short lived.
Altman deserves credit for not being stubborn.

Large overbearing wheel arches complete the rugged look, which should do well in setting the Santa Fe apart from the competition. A new Safety Exit Assist will also lock the doors if the vehicle detects a vehicle approaching from the rear.
The Lakers were the true winners of this trade. "Rodney Hood is about to show out". Even though there are reports that the relationship between Dan Gilbert and LeBron was strained, it's best for everyone that they work together. But I'm keeping an eye on the Lakers. I truly believe you'll see that it was worth it. "It's probably obviously something that they felt was needed". It's like eating at Texas Roadhouse. "You can't quantify it, but it matters".
