  • Isaiah Thomas lowlight reel made for the saddest Cavaliers tribute video

In his first game with the Lakers, Thomas is proving he is anything but that.

"The plan is for Thomas to eventually work himself into position to join the starting five, according to sources".

As the Los Angeles Lakers get ready for their Saturday evening matchup against the Dallas Mavericks, the team is figuring out how to incorporate new additions Isaiah Thomas and Channing Frye into the lineup. Everything else will work itself out.

By doing so, the Lakers were able to create enough cap space to pursue two max free agents this coming offseason. He was shipped off to Cleveland in exchange for Kyrie Irving in a deal that sent the Cavaliers Jae Crowder, Ante Zizic and the Nets' 2018 first-round pick.

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.

The diminutive guard's travels began after he was traded from the Boston Celtics to the Cleveland Cavaliers last August.

And Magic Johnson knows that with Lonzo Ball out, the Lakers need a point guard. "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".

"He's day-to-day, (Ball) is".

Coming off the surgery, Thomas is clearly not all the way back to where he was. Although, he also said he wants to help L.A. any way he can. This is what I've been doing in terms of my regimen of when I work out.' All those things - we didn't have anybody to teach Lonzo anything.
