The Cleveland Cavaliers made some moves on NBA trade deadline day, retooling most of their team around LeBron James in an effort to get younger and hopefully save their season. While arguably the most notable move was trading Isaiah Thomas to the Lakers for Jordan Clarkson and Larry Nance Jr, the team also pulled off a huge three-team deal that netted them Rodney Hood and George Hill. Part of that three-team deal is moving Dwayne Wade back to Miami, where he started his career 15 years ago. All this movement means a potential Isaiah Thomas revenge game is looming when the Lakers and Cavs play in March, but don’t expect similar vibes when the Cavs and Heat play on March 27. James broke his social media silence on deadline day to congratulate Wade on his return to Miami, enthusiastically endorsing the move the Cavs made to trade his longtime friend out of town.
