Cavaliers Mum On 'Non-Surgical' Approach To Thomas's Hip

Cavaliers Mum On 'Non-Surgical' Approach To Thomas's Hip

"We're also not going to put a timetable on his return".

"But this year ... man, it's not even going to be a thing".

Isaiah Thomas' two sons had different reactions to his trade from the Celtics to the Cavaliers.

As additional compensation, the Celtics threw in a 2020 second-round pick, and the trade was completed.

Altman did say Cleveland had a "nonsurgical plan" in place for Thomas, after which Thomas chimed in, "Y'all hear that?" "If I.T. hadn't helped us get back on the map. we're probably not sitting here having this press conference".

Thomas will be the starting point guard for the Cavs next season, and he should benefit from playing alongside James. 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.

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. In 66 games last season, the 27-year-old point guard posted 21.1 points, 6.3 assists, and 4.8 rebounds while shooting 43.4 percent from the field and 33.5 percent from beyond the arc.




"When it comes to basketball, there's no pressure", Thomas said.

The video shows Thomas telling someone on the phone how he learned he got traded and then features images of Thomas rehabbing his injured hip, all while soundbites about the trade - and his hip - play in the background.

"I was able to whisper to my mom before she passed", Crowder said.

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

Following the trade, Brady texted Thomas to ask how he was handling the news.

Now Crowder comes back to the team that initially selected him out of Marquette University, looking to fuel the bench as a lockdown defender and knock-down shooter -- one which the Cavs will make great use of coming into the start of the season.

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

"We wouldn't be here today with Kyrie and Gordon and Al Horford, if I.T. didn't exist", Ainge said.
