James finished with 22 points, 12 rebounds and 17 assists, and Korver scored a season-high 30 points, including seven 3-pointers, for the Cavaliers, who remade their roster ahead of Thursday's trade deadline.

As the Thomas swap was being digested around the league, the Cavs completed a three-team deal with Utah and Sacramento.

James wished "the best" to all six players that left the team, and explained that he and the coaching must get the new players "on the same page".

"It is hard to see him go and we wish Channing and his family the very best", Altman said in a statement of Frye, part of the 2016 National Basketball Association championship team. "It was a good start for the new guys, a good start for all of us with our revamped team".

The most controversial moves involved Thomas and Wade. Wade was one of James' closest friends who came to Cleveland just to be reunited with his former Miami Heat running mate. In fact, this deal may have been something like what a LeBron sign-and-trade would have looked like, but with the Lakers sending back more in return. The Lakers drafted him with the 27th overall pick in the 2015 draft. "This trade is also a reflection of our continuing commitment to invest in our roster in ways that help us evolve and compete at the highest level now and into the future", Altman said in a statement. He did an incredible amount to get himself back in playing condition; he did a wonderful job to get himself back from a major injury.

"You have to figure out fit", Altman said. It's going to be very challenging, but we're looking forward to it and we accept it.

The Cavaliers took their largest lead at the time, 23, with 2:19 to the play in the third. Crowder followed suit on Friday morning.

"The small little doses that I was able to play with Jae and IT, I wish it could have been better than it was", James said. With LeBron, I feel like they're going to be explosive. Because Dwyane did come in large part because of LeBron, and because of the situation here. The Cavs decided after seeing him for 15 whole games that they couldn't wait for Thomas to round into form after missing most of the season with his hip problem, so the new people better show they can mesh with LeBron James before they fully unpack their suitcases. "I think everything else at that point is irrelevant". "I can't wait to see LeBron throw him that alley-oop and he'll get that first dunk".

While Altman's main objective was to fix Cleveland's culture, his efforts also were created to appease James, who hasn't been himself in recent weeks. "We had a half a practice yesterday, because a couple of the guys weren't cleared to go". "This guy is so good, he dictates outcomes. But every night it could be somebody different".

Monroe is a veteran big man that has eight years of experience under his belt already.

"It's not something I wanted to do", Altman said. And people speculate all the time about how hands-on he is and how much he's involved.

"Kyrie, what did you think of Cleveland's moves today?"

But the excitement in his voice made it sound as if he would gladly do the whole thing over again if given the opportunity. It was the first time the team would put the rebooted version on the court.
