The Cleveland Cavaliers Implode At The Trade Deadline – Dump Half The Team

The Cleveland Cavaliers sent six players packing hours before the Thursday afternoon trade deadline.

Dwayne Wade was traded to the Miami Heat, Channing Frye and Isaiah Thomas were sent to the Lakers, Iman Shumpert got kicked to the Kings and Derek Rose and Jae Crowder got traded to the Jazz.

The team got Larry Nance, Jordan Clarkson, George Hill and Rodney Hood in the exchange.

What is happening right now in Cleveland? This is pure chaos. I don’t know if there’s ever been a time in recent NBA history where a team dumped half of it’s 12 man roster in a matter of hours.

I understand that this is all a ploy to keep LeBron James on the team this summer, but I think they just accomplished the exact opposite. The Cavaliers roster is a bad joke outside of James, and Kevin Love. The latter of the pair is hurt, and who knows when he’ll play again. This team is in some serious trouble, and I wouldn’t bet a single penny on James returning. I wouldn’t be able to find the exit fast enough if I were him.
