A uneventful trade deadline has just been completely shaken up today. Per Adrian Wojnarowski, the Los Angeles Lakers and Cleveland Cavaliers have agreed to a trade Jordan Clarkson and Larry Nance Jr. for Isaiah Thomas, Channing Frye and a protected first round draft pick.

This is a huge shakeup for both teams. Nance Jr. and Clarkson were apart of the Lakers young core that they hoped to build upon. Isaiah Thomas was traded to the Cavaliers last year for Kyrie Iriving in what was arguably one of the biggest trades of the summer. Thomas was supposed to replace Iriving and provide the Cavaliers with another starting point guard that could score.

It will be interesting to see how seriously Thomas takes the Lakers-Celtics rivalry after playing on both teams. Unfortunately the two teams won’t play each other during the rest of the season.

The trade also comes after Thomas expressed frustration about being traded and his eagerness to remain with the Cavaliers.

The Lakers have cleared cap space heading into the off season with this move. Bobby Marks from ESPN states that the Lakers will take on Thomas’ expiring contract of $6.3 million and Frye’s expiring contract of $7.4 million which will give them $46.9 million in cap room this summer. If they don’t bring back Luol Deng or Julius Randle then the cap space will increase to $69 million.

With the off season coming up, this major clearance of cap space shows that the Lakers are looking to make huge signings. Rumors have been swirling about the Lakers wanting to sign either Lebron James or Paul George next season, and it looks like they’re preparing to do just that.
