Koby Altman received permission from Dan Gilbert for the Cleveland Cavaliers to trade Jae Crowder, Channing Frye, Iman Shumpert and Cleveland's 2018 first round pick to the Los Angeles Clippers for DeAndre Jordan.

The Clippers were willing to accept that trade if the Cavaliers found a third team for Shumpert and the $21 million remaining on his contract while also helping them get a center back.

Altman and Michael Winger made calls to try to find a third team.
