Isaiah Thomas, Jordan Clarkson Cavs-Lakers Trade Headlines Wild NBA Trade Deadline

Isaiah Thomas Dallas Mavericks vs. Los Angeles Lakers - 2/10/18 NBA Pick, Odds, and Prediction
Frederick Owens | 15 February, 2018, 14:47

Isaiah Thomas scored 22 points on 7-of-12 shooting from the field in his first game after being traded from the Cleveland Cavaliers to the Los Angeles Lakers in the waning hours of the February 8 trade deadline. He had a strong debut for the Lakers on Saturday with 22 points, one rebound, six assists, one steal and four 3-pointer in 31 minutes, but he did have some turnover problems late and it didn't help that he's not familiar with most of the plays.

Scoring 22 points in his Lakers debut may be a sign that it might not all be bad in Los Angeles for him, but there should still be a concern as to what his attitude has the potential to do within the locker room - especially with LaVar Ball also in town. However, he has lacked the same explosiveness that made him an MVP candidate last season in Boston, averaging 14.7 points and 4.5 assists through 15 games.

The Lakers are also more than happy to have acquired a first-round draft pick from the Cavaliers in the deal after not possessing one of their own due to a 2012 deal the team made to acquire former point guard Steve Nash. Like I said, yes, I would love to be a starter, but I'm on a new team that's playing very well right now and I don't want to mess any of that up.

With just one game and one practice under his belt, Thomas has already been a pleasant surprise to Coach Luke Walton, who anticipated more of a learning curve as far as Thomas getting comfortable with where his new teammates like the ball and to come off screens. After the trade went down last Thursday, there were several reports in the media about how Thomas would not be willing to accept a role off the bench.

WIth the recent shakeup by the Cleveland Cavaliers, at the February 8 trade deadline, six players find themselves on new squads.

Besides noticing the mismatches that await, the Lakers must figure a way to play defense when Thomas on the floor. "I am happy to be here with the Lakers, happy to be with a young team that is exciting, that likes to get up and down". The wide-open nature of Saturday's game, a 130-123 loss, showcased Thomas' talents. Thomas himself did not necessarily make the Celtics thrive in the East. "I thought it was tough for the guys that subbed in, but the fight was there all night". "I think as I get more familiar with the guys and more familiar with the system, it's just gonna be that much easier". It will be interesting to see how things work when Ball is healthy and able to play.

"I mean, this is the first real practice I had all year", he said, according to Ward. Offensively, I couldn't get going, either.
