Losing Derrick Rose on a faltering Cleveland Cavaliers squad was bad news. But while the 2011 NBA MVP figures out whether he wants to return to basketball, the team is angling for another point guard to make his entrance at The Q. According to ESPN’s Brian Windhorst, the Cavaliers are apparently aiming for Isaiah Thomas to return before the Christmas Day extravaganza begins. Thomas, 28, came to Cleveland with Jae Crowder in exchange for Kyrie Irving back before the start of the 2017-18 NBA season.
