Isaiah Thomas Discusses His Trade to the Lakers

Los Angeles Lakers guard Isaiah Thomas fouls Dallas Mavericks guard Kyle Collinsworth as he goes up for a shot against Los Angeles Lakers center Brook Lopez in the second half of an NBA basketball game Saturday Feb. 10 2018 in Dallas. The

This shouldn't come as too much of a surprise, but Isaiah isn't going to start in his Lakers' debut.

Thomas had dinner with Lakers coach Luke Walton on Friday and discussed his role with the team, as well as the organization's expectations after being acquired from the Cleveland Cavaliers on Thursday during the National Basketball Association trade deadline, according to the report.

Duterte said he has no issues with Canada's position on the helicopters but noted that the Philippines has its own needs. Thousands of people have allegedly been killed since July 2016 in the crackdown on drug dealers and users.

The 5-9 Thomas was a second-team All-NBA choice after averaging a career-high 28.9 points per game as a member of the Celtics last season.

Isaiah Thomas said his trade to the Lakers is a "new chapter" as he talked about the deal that sent him to Los Angeles on Saturday. "I am happy to be here with the Lakers, happy to be with a young team that is exciting, that likes to get up and down - that's my style of play".

In just 14 minutes of action off the bench, Thomas led all scorers with 16 points on 4-of-7 shots from behind the arc and four assists. But if the Lakers choose to offer Thomas his fair share of playmaking duties as well, the star rookie showed at UCLA that he can also succeed in an off-ball capacity.

It's been a brutal season for Thomas so far and his plan to skip surgery on his torn hip labrum and have a strong final year ahead of his contract has backfired so far. "So especially with that type of experience and the fact that he can score the basketball and pass it, we want to get (Thomas) in here fast". We don't know when he's coming back. Hopefully IT can come in and do that.
