Get Ready, Isaiah Thomas Is About To Ball Out In Cleveland

Thomas, who will be introduced to the local media at an 11 a.m. press conference Thursday at Cleveland Clinic Courts that will also include former Boston teammates Jae Crowder and Ante Zizic and Cavaliers general manager Koby Altman and coach Tyronn Lue, posted a lengthy article on The Players' Tribune website Wednesday that detailed his eagerness to play with three-time National Basketball Association champion James. "We're not going to rush this thing".

Isaiah Thomas took to Instagram to share his thoughts surrounding the drama of his trade from the Celtics to the Cavaliers.

Koby Altman confirmed that the treatment plan of Thomas does not include surgery.

"I'mma just say this here, point-blank, to get it over with - and then you can go ahead and post it on whatever bulletin boards you want to", Thomas teased knowing he was about to drop a bomb on the National Basketball Association.

The 28-year-old Thomas was dealt to the Eastern Conference champs along with Jae Crowder, Ante Zizic, a 2018 first-round selection through the Brooklyn Nets, and a 2020 second-round pick in exchange for fellow All Star guard Kyrie Irving.

Dressed smartly in a wine-colored sport coat for his introductory news conference, Thomas said the Celtics' decision to trade him was initially painful.

While Altman was careful not to put any expectations on a return date, Cavs coach Tyronn Lue revealed that Thomas will miss the start of the season.

"Cleveland. They traded me for Kyrie".

Now in Cleveland, he won't be looked at as "The Man" anymore, but as the sidekick to one of the best players in the world, the main reason why the player he replaced, Kyrie Irving, was so adamant to leave. Thomas was unstoppable last season even when they double and triple teamed him.

Before Crowder heads back to Atlanta to continue to console his grandmother, he is going house-hunting in Cleveland with the help of new teammate J.R. Smith. But Rose has averaged just 48 games played per season since missing the 2012-13 campaign, and Calderon averaged 13.1 minutes per game in his age-35 season.

Boston general manager Danny Ainge acknowledged Thomas' hip injury played a factor in the Celtics seeking the trade.

"Me on the Cavs is a match made in heaven".

"There was a lot going on that day, obviously", Crowder told reporters in Cleveland.

Thomas has remained relatively quiet on his feelings about the trade. The Cavaliers were able to acquire a dedicated and terrific player in Thomas for this upcoming season.
