"More so it's going to be a walk-through, just trying to teach the new guys the plays and what we're trying to do defensively", he said.
"Just want to say thank you to all the Cavs fans, Cleveland, everybody", Frye said.
The Cavs dealt three players - Thomas, Crowder and Derrick Rose - who were legitimately hurting them on the court, plus one who wasn't playing (Iman Shumpert), one who didn't play enough (Channing Frye) and one whose role was about to be reduced and wanted out (Dwyane Wade) in exchange for four players who should make them better nearly immediately.
All that wheeling-and-dealing stole headlines even with almost two-thirds of the league making deals.
Thanks to a series of trades that rehashed their veteran-laden, old and non-athletic team, the Cleveland Cavaliers suddenly are now younger, more athletic and most importantly-able to compete in a faster National Basketball Association. Jordan won three titles upon his return.
He said: "I did bring my game console and I will get it set up in Boston, get the updated rosters and I'll see how it translates".
Most of the moves outside Cleveland on Thursday were minor, for a few reasons. None of the new acquisitions were in uniform against the Hawks, but James and Korver were more than enough. There simply weren't many blockbusters left to be made. But they got younger players who will all listen to LeBron and fill their role. By taking on Clarkson and Nance, the Cavaliers gave the Lakers the ability to approach $70 million in cap room this summer (assuming they stretch the remaining $36 million on Luol Deng's contract and don't keep Julius Randle).
"This is all so new to me", he said.
"'Hey, this is what you need to look for when you're playing against this guy. And he just always rose to those occasions, just consistently wanting that shot, wanting that possession". Atlanta has nothing to play for these days while LeBron could be energized by all the trades.
The Cavaliers desperately needed to change the tenor around the franchise. "IT has had a difficult and very challenging basketball journey over the past year as he has worked extremely hard to make progress in his return to play". The Denver Nuggets brought in Devin Harris and sent out Emmanuel Mudiay in a three-team trade with NY that landed Doug McDermott in Dallas. George has bonded with Westbrook, but he isn't offering any guarantees he'll stay in Oklahoma City beyond this season.
