Reports surfaced earlier today that Cleveland had also dealt Isaiah Thomas and Channing Frye to the Lakers in exchange for Jordan Clarkson and Larry Nance. Jr.

In addition, the Cleveland Cavaliers have reportedly agreed to trade Dwyane Wade back to his original team, the Miami Heat. ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reports that Cleveland will receive a "heavily protected second-round pick" in exchange for the 36-year-old guard.

Wade, who played his first 13 NBA seasons with the Heat, is averaging a career-low 11.2 points per contest on 45.5 percent shooting this year.
