The Cavaliers will introduce its newest members — Isaiah Thomas, Jae Crowder and Ante Zizic in the roster during a press conference on Thursday, September 7, at the Cleveland Clinic Courts.
The Cavaliers landed the trio, along with an extremely precious 2018 first-rounder draft pick from the Brooklyn Nets, in a blockbuster trade for only the All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving.
Isaiah Thomas may still be getting used to the feeling he’s now a player of the Cavaliers following a mega blockbuster trade, but the organization is doing every single thing it can to assist the point guard get accommodated to his new environment.
Cavaliers’ newest member, traded by the Celtics to Cavs last week, was seen showcasing his new enclosure alongside his son in the Cleveland Clinic Courts’ locker room. A photograph surfaced on social media on Monday, thanks to ESPN’s Chris Fowler, who scanned the images from Isiah Thomas’ wife Kayla’s Instagram story. It also featured point guard Thomas on the Cavs’ practice court.

There are still a number of arguments concerning Isiah Thomas, who wrote a heartfelt goodbye to Boston Celtics on Wednesday, September 6th, but didn’t talk the persisting hip injury that has put his playing availability for the start of the 2017-18 NBA regular season at risk. He arrived in Cleveland still dealing with hip injury, so it may be some time before Thomas gets the chance to put his motivation into action-packed basketball in an NBA game. Thomas reportedly will start working with the Cavaliers medical staff and with the questions about his debut in a Cavaliers uniform could still be a directions away.
The press conference, which will also feature the Cavaliers head coach Tyronn Lue and franchise general manager Koby Altman, is scheduled to commence at 12:30 P.M, as Jae Crowder had some early morning travel matters. Cavs general manager Koby Altman said, “The goal is to bring [Isaiah Thomas] back at some point this year and be healthy, compete, and get back to IT status.”
