The Los Angeles Lakers acquired Isaiah Thomas, Channing Frye and a 2018 first-round pick from the Cleveland Cavaliers for Jordan Clarkson and Larry Nance Jr.

The Cleveland Cavaliers continued the revamping of their roster before Thursday's trade deadline by acquiring shooting guard Rodney Hood from Utah and point guard George Hill from Sacramento in a three-team trade, according to ESPN. There are mixed reports on other pieces potentially involved in the trade. Wojnarowksi then tweeted that Joe Johnson would be leaving too, but to Sacramento as part of a three-team deal.

After, the Cavs continued revamping their roster after by adding supplemental backcourt help in Hood in Hill. The Jazz would receive Jae Crowder and former league MVP Derrick Rose. Especially Iman, who also leaves as a champion and was another part of a special group that earned success at the highest level here.

Crowder is the big prize for the Jazz.

Money doesn't seem to be a factor for Rose, who will make more than $11 million this season from his endorsement deal with Adidas, Sports Illustrated recently reported. We simply don't know what the rotations in Cleveland will look like, of course, but we also just don't know how these players will fit together, and most importantly, with LeBron.

After the Jazz waive Rose, the Minnesota Timberwolves will reportedly try to sign him.

As for Hood, he's in the midst of a career season, averaging 17 points per game and shooting 39 percent from 3-point range.
