GM Koby Altman on Isaiah Thomas' hip injury situation

Kevin Love and Le Bron James

Altman intercepted that question the same way James jumps passing lanes to swipe the ball from opponents and head the other way for one of his trademark dunks. I just told her, 'We're going to Cleveland.' Five minutes later, she passed.

Looking forward, Thomas said that he's very much excited to play with LeBron James and the rest of the Cavaliers next season. Maybe he meant training camp, maybe he meant preseason, but here we are. In 2016, it was widely reported that more people watched the final showdown in the biggest League of Legends tournament than the iconic Game 7 of the NBA Finals between the Golden State Warriors and the Cleveland Cavaliers.

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

Now that the deal is final, Thomas - who is rehabbing this week in Cleveland - shared an emotional glimpse of what he has gone through over the past couple of months.

Thomas smiled and joked about everyone wanting to play doctor. "If I.T. hadn't helped us get back on the map. we're probably not sitting here having this press conference".

As a two-time NBA All-Star and All-NBA Second-Team selection from last season, he will cost a pretty penny for Cleveland or whichever team decides to sign him during the 2018 offseason.

"It's been my story". I made it clear to the organization that I was concerned about it and just wanted more direction.

"He's texted me a few times".

I believe the Cleveland Cavaliers won't notice Kyrie Irving gone on the offensive end because Thomas is just as good of an explosive offensive player.

Danny Ainge has made no secret about how hard it was for him to tell Isaiah Thomas that he had been traded to Cleveland in a deal that centered around Boston acquiring four-time all-star Kyrie Irving.

Unlike his former and current teammate with the touchy hip, the 6-6 Crowder is ready to go and coming off the best of his six seasons in the National Basketball Association.

His best overall season came last season with the Celtics, where he lead them to the #1 seed in the Eastern Conference with these per game stats: 29 points, 6.0 assists, 2.7 rebounds, 46% field goal shooting, 38% from three. In addition to his improved offensive skills, Lue singled out Crowder for being able to defend opponents at four positions.
