Isaiah Thomas reacts to getting traded by Wizards

The Los Angeles Clippers do not intend to keep Isaiah Thomas on their roster, David Aldridge of The Athletic reports.

The Knicks receive: Moe Harkless, rights to Issuf Sanon (via Wizards), Clippers' 2020 first-round pick, rights to pick-swap the Clippers' 2021 first-round.

"We don't care if it's a blowout or it's a close one - we need to learn how to do both", said George, who had 19 points, 12 rebounds and eight assists as the Clippers, second in the Western Conference, improved to 35-15.

The Lakers can certainly use another defender to throw at Kawhi Leonard or Paul George in a potential postseason matchup, a role Morris could have filled. The free-agent-to-be was the Knicks' leading scorer with 19.6 points per contest.

"LeBron came out and hit five straight threes in 3-1/2 minutes". The Clippers already have Patrick Beverley and Lou Williams, so the team opted to waive the veteran guard.

According to the latest oddsmakers, the Pelicans are favored at home, as they are getting odds of -2.5 points against the Thunder. Zion Williamson made his season debut against the Spurs on January 22 and has averaged 21 points and 7.7 boards since his return.

With an advantage of 13 points in three quarters, the Lakers began the final period with a flourish, scoring 21 points in the first three and a half minutes. Of the 89 players that attempt at least 4.4 threes per game, only J.J. Redick is shooting a better percentage than Morris from behind the arc.

Lillard, who had nine assists in the loss, arrived on Tuesday averaging 48.8 points and 10.2 assists in his previous six games, but Denver retained him. I mean, he's not going to rekindle his 3-point shooting. He made 37.5% of the 5.2 threes he averaged a season ago.

The addition of Morris gives the Clippers a nice rotation of big men for the postseason.

'I take pride in that, and whenever I have an opportunity to guard a guy one-on-one, I like it, ' said Antetokounmpo, whose defensive highlights included catching Williamson from behind on a fast break and swatting his shot out of bounds.

Doc Rivers doesn't have to play Morris at the end of games. The Lakers are now the best team in the Western Conference while the Clippers are a close second.
