Thomas has not been a good fit for the Cavaliers while coming back from a hip injury, and is leaving after just playing 15 games.

CLEVELAND—A person familiar with direct knowledge of the trade says the Cleveland Cavaliers are dealing guard Isaiah Thomas to the Los Angeles Lakers.

The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Thursday because the teams need NBA approval before the trade can be completed.

Thomas has not been a good fit with Cleveland while coming back from a hip injury, and is leaving after playing just 15 games.

The person adds that Cleveland is also sending forward Channing Frye and one of their two first-round draft picks to the Lakers for point guard Jordan Clarkson and forward Larry Nance Jr. The Cavs will keep the other first-round pick in the trade that sent Kyrie Irving to Boston last summer for Thomas.
