The 2018 NBA trade deadline has officially passed. Cavaliers were busy hours before the NBA trade deadline, cleaning the house by selling out some of their first team players. They swapped out six players with an average age of 30.3 years old for four players with an average age of 26.5 years old. It is going to be an emotional homecoming to Miami Heat for their three times champion.
In fact, here’s a quick breakdown: Isaiah Thomas and Channing Frye joined Los Angeles Lakers. Jae Crowder and Derrick Rose went to the Jazz, Iman Shumpert headed to the Kings, and Dwyane Wade went back to Miami Heat. The Cavs get Jordan Clarkson, Larry Nance Jr., Rodney Hood, and George Hill. Wade had said that he would like to end his career where he started it, Miami Heat.
At 36, Wade is playing limited minutes this season as his 23.2 per game and three starts are both career lows. With his trade to Miami, he may get more of a chance for game time. He also will have an easy path to retiring as a member of the Heat. The Cavaliers got a heavily protected second-round pick in the deal and LeBron James understands the situation.

LeBron James took Instagram to send a message to D-Wade, now that the duo of peanut butter and jelly is no more. “Truly happy for my brother @dwyanewade!! Channing Frye, a member of the 2016 NBA Championship team and fan favorite, thanks Cavs fans in a video posted on Instagram. It’s how it’s supposed to be. Love you, my guy!!” The question now is: What would these massive trade deals help the Cavs?
