CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Whether the Cavaliers make a trade Thursday or they don't, they're going to look different the next time they play.

The first sign of that came in Wednesday's 140-138 overtime win over Minnesota. Rookie Cedi Osman played 21 minutes, scoring nine points with four rebounds. He hadn't logged more than seven minutes in any game since Jan. 12.

While a case could be made that there was room in coach Tyronn Lue's rotation to play Osman Wednesday because Dwyane Wade was resting on the second night of back-to-back games, Lue wants to play Osman. - CLICK HERE to read full story.

CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Isaiah Thomas said he is not hoping he's traded from the Cavaliers by Thursday's 3 p.m. deadline, while acknowledging the rocky start to his tenure here.

"I'm tired of being traded," Thomas said, after the Cavs stunned Minnesota, 140-138 in overtime. "That's not a good thing, but, I just want to be where I'm wanted. I like it here. It hasn't been as planned, but I definitely want to be here. We definitely have a real chance to win an NBA championship and I want to be a part of that."

Thomas' name hasn't come up in any specific trade rumors. Per sources, the Cavs have shopped J.R. Smith, Iman Shumpert, Tristan Thompson, and Channing Frye over the past several days. - CLICK HERE to read full story.
