Isaiah Thomas on trade to Cavaliers: "It still hurts".

Isaiah Thomas on trade to Cavaliers:

Cavaliers first-year General Manager Koby Altman was peppered with questions about new point guard Isaiah Thomas's injured hip at the team's introductory press conference on Thursday. Thomas says he won't have to worry about being double- or triple-teamed any more.

But an expiring contract - coupled with a desire for a new, maximum deal - and a hip injury that itself nearly derailed the trade led Celtics boss Danny Ainge to trade Thomas to Cleveland along with Jae Crowder, Ante Zizic and a first-round draft pick. It could also be the difference between Thomas being a one-year loan for the Cavs, or if he's in the long-term plans with the future of LeBron James also cloudy. "'I just traded you.' Simple as that". Thomas wasn't too thrilled with leaving Boston, a city that allowed him to grow from a volume scorer on bad teams to the centerpiece of an up-and-coming Celtic team.

"I fell in love with Boston", Thomas wrote.

Thomas said he has been getting treatment on the hip every day and working out in the weight room. But this year. man, it's not even going to be a thing.

The point guard said he understands the business nature of the National Basketball Association, and said he's looking forward to playing with LeBron James. You really going to throw three guys on me, when I'm sharing a court with the best basketball player on the planet?

The video culminates with film of Thomas putting up shots in a Cleveland practice jersey, with posters of him in Boston gear in the background. LeBron James has given no indication of his plans beyond this upcoming season, and by keeping the pick, the Cavaliers can rebuild right away if he decides to leave. But that won't just be 'the team I used to be on.' That's my old team.

Thomas, 28, averaged a career-high tally of 28.9 points and 5.9 assists per game last season and led the Celtics to the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference. I made it clear to the organization that I was concerned about it and just wanted more direction. Who knows, maybe they can convince James to stay by adding another star to the roster.
