Cleveland Cavs: Isaiah Thomas Won't Be Ready For Season Opener

Cleveland Cavaliers NBA Trade and Roster Rumors: Cavs Shopping the First-Round Pick They Acquired in the Kyrie Irving Trade

Cleveland Cavaliers guard Isaiah Thomas recently broke his silence following the blockbuster deal from the Boston Celtics, and through a Players' Tribune piece said that his former team "did not get better by making this trade". ". We're not going to rush it, at all".

The state of Thomas' hip during a physical was a holdup in completing the trade that sent Kyrie Irving to the Celtics.

While evasive on details, Altman, whose promotion to full-time GM was among the notable moves in a chaotic summer for the Cavs, did reveal that the rehab plan for Thomas does not include surgery.

"I'mma just say this here, point-blank, to get it over with", Thomas wrote, "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".

Crowder described the scene during an introductory press conference in Cleveland. After doctors in Boston asked Thomas to avoid hip surgery, the guard stuck to his summer of regimen of rehabilitation and rest, with hopes of returning to the court for the 2017-18 National Basketball Association season. "It made me realize that this is a business and anybody other than probably LeBron James or Kevin Durant or those type of guys can be traded".

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.

The mindset stays the same, we need to play to win and have to ensure that complacency doesn't creep in". If that does not make him the greatest limited-overs batsman, the criteria must be absurd.

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

"I read that like a guy who has been in the locker room with him every day for the last two and a half years and flown on the the plane", Stevens says. He said he played that game because for him, basketball was a way to cope. "The good thing about the whole ordeal was I was able to whisper it to my mom before she passed". "I just told her 'I'm going to Cleveland, ' and five minutes later she passed".

Thomas has remained relatively quiet on his feelings about the trade. "It could be a part of a major trade package for the Cavs later this year, or, conceivably, the Cavs could make that pick next June", Vardon said.

Thomas was bullish about the Cavs' potential this upcoming season.

"We built that", he said.
