Nobody saw all this coming.

The 2018 NBA trade deadline turned into one of the most insane days in recent memory — and all because of the Cleveland Cavaliers. In an unprecedented couple of moves, the Cavaliers sent out six players they saw as part of the problem and brought in four players who are younger, more athletic, and might actually try on defense. It was a bold stroke, but is it enough to win the East and keep LeBron James in Cleveland?

Kurt Helin and Dan Feldman of NBC Sports break down what happened with the Cavaliers, where they go from here. They also get into Tyreke Evans, DeAndre Jordan and the guys not moved, what this means for Utah and their playoff chase, what it means for the Lakers and their cap space, and all-things trade deadline.
