Isaiah Thomas is a Cleveland Cavalier.
The Cavs, however, are reportedly still 'weighing options' after the 5-foot-9 guard underwent his standard post-trade physical, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski. Thomas suffered a hip injury last season, which forced him to miss the final three games of the Eastern Conference finals. He elected not to have surgery.

Thomas traveled to Cleveland, took exam and flew back out of town, sources said. All players must pass physical, or a deal can be voided.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) August 26, 2017

If a player does not pass a post-trade physical to his new team's satisfaction, the transaction can be voided by that team. Such an occurrence took place in in 2009, when a trade that would have sent Tyson Chandler to Oklahoma City was rescinded by the Thunder after the team deemed re-injury to his big toe was too great of a possibility.
Thomas was dealt along with Jae Crowder and Brooklyn's 2018 No. 1 pick in exchange for Kyrie Irving earlier this week.
