General manager Koby Altman traded six players, including Isaiah Thomas, Dwyane Wade and Derrick Rose, and two draft picks in moves created to help them not only in the short term but could help keep LeBron James beyond this season. James has said he would like to finish his career in Cleveland.

George Hill is practically an ideal point guard for LeBron's team, as he can run pick-and-rolls when needed, he is a great defensive player, and he has the ability to guard opposing players.

Prior to landing Blake Griffin in a recent trade with the Clippers, there is no way the Pistons would have been included on this list because there is no way LeBron will ever sign with a team unless it has multiple superstars to play alongside him.

"I was honored that it was my first start", Osman said.

The Lakers will also get the Cavaliers' protected first-round draft pick in 2018 as part of the deal.

Now that the trade deadline has passed, the Cavs have a new look and a fresh start to their 2018 Championship hopes.

Cleveland trades Isaiah Thomas, Channing Frye to Lakers for Jordan Clarkson, Larry Nance Jr. They could sign two players this summer, or sign one this summer and wait until 2019 to sign another. However, much of the talk centering around Cleveland isn't about their new additions impacting this season.

"We were really anxious that what was going on on the floor and sort of our culture in the building that we were marching a slow death", Altman said. "To try to get on a page where we feel like we're confident enough to win a playoff game". Not only Boston, but Toronto and Philadelphia and a lot of other teams in the Eastern Conference and the rest of league. Hood took five shots in his first six minutes as a Cavalier, and he scored eight quick points as a result.

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.

"At the end of the day, I just like being around guys who want to play and work hard", James said.

These pieces complement LeBron better than their outgoing players who could not shoot to space the floor for LeBron and contributed a lot to Cleveland's bad defense. Among all National Basketball Association players defending at least 100 pick-and-roll plays this season, only two guards - Lou Williams and Frank Ntilikina - allowed fewer points per possession. LeBron James on Friday morning told reporters that he likes "the pieces that we have coming in".

According to Ramona Shelburne of ESPN, Cavs GM Koby Altman actually came to LeBron to make sure he was okay with Wade heading back to Miami.
