Isaiah Thomas seeks new agent to handle 2018 free agency

Isaiah Thomas seeks new agent to handle 2018 free agency

The Cleveland Cavaliers attempted to deflect any questions about the hip of Isaiah Thomas during a press conference.

Cavaliers general manager Koby Altman said in a press conference Wednesday there is no timetable for when Thomas will be ready to play this season.

The Cavaliers will also get the Miami Heat's 2020 second-round pick, but the Brooklyn Net's unprotected 2018 first-round pick is, without a doubt, the most attractive trade asset they got in return for Irving.

Questions following Thomas' physical examination and his recovery from a postseason hip injury served as a significant hiccup to completing the deal that sent fellow All-Star guard Kyrie Irving to the Celtics.

"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: You are not going to want to mess with the Cavs this year", he said.

Thomas had not posted anything to his various social media accounts since August 22, the day the Celtics and Cavaliers first agreed to the swap that sent Kyrie Irving to Boston in exchange for Thomas, Jae Crowder, Ante Zizic and a 2018 first-round draft pick (via Brooklyn).

More than two weeks have passed since the Cavs and Celtics originally agreed to terms of the deal, and Thursday's news conference was pushed back an additional 90 minutes because of a travel issue for Crowder, whose plane was delayed in Atlanta.

President Donald Trump said on August 28 that "all options" were on the table in an implied threat of preemptive military action. Two days after North Korea fired an intermediate-range missile over Japan, U.S.

Coach Tyronn Lue said that Thomas would not start the season and declared Derrick Rose as the team's primary point guard with Jose Calderon backing him up in Thomas' absence. It made me realize this is a business and anyone other than LeBron James and Kevin Durant and those kinds of guys can be traded.

"And that's just LeBron", continued Thomas, who averaged a career-high 28.9 points a game last season.

"It's not about social media or anything like that connecting with (fans), it's all about showing what you bring to the team and showing how much you respect the game of basketball", said Crowder. "The good thing about the whole ordeal was I was able to whisper it to my mom before she passed".

To strengthen their chance of dethroning the Golden State Warriors, Cleveland should continue upgrading their roster by adding players who can mesh well with "The King".

But yeah, I'll just say it: That shit hurt.

"Just a little bit", smiled Thomas, when asked about being underestimated his whole career. I'm blessed to be traded to a situation where we could win a championship next year.
