We knew it was coming, and we finally have our first blockbuster trade of NBA deadline day.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, the Los Angeles Lakers and Cleveland Cavaliers are both involved in a massive trade that will see two of the Lakers’ young core headed Cleveland’s way.

That’s right, both Jordan Clarkson and Larry Nance Jr. will be joining LeBron James in Cleveland.

Who are the Cavs giving up in return? None other than Isaiah Thomas, Channing Frye and their 2018 first-rounder.

Understandably, some Lakers players are already pretty annoyed by the deal, as both Clarkson and Nance were major parts of the Lakers bench squad.

This move is sure to delight Cavs’ fans, as Isaiah Thomas has been extremely disappointing for his new team this season, and getting him shipped off for two young talents is a steal.
