From Isaiah Thomas to Dwyane Wade and Derrick Rose, the Cleveland Cavaliers loaded up on big names last summer.
None will be there if the Cavaliers get back to the NBA Finals.
In what felt like an unprecedented do-over for a contending team, the Cavaliers simply changed the pieces that were not fitting for new ones on Thursday at the trade deadline.
General manager Koby Altman used a series of swaps to strengthen a sputtering team and leave open the possibility for more moves.
The Cavaliers acquired Jordan Clarkson and Larry Nance Jr. in the deal with Los Angeles Lakers, which also got Channing Frye and a first-round pick from Cleveland.
George Hill came from the Sacramento Kings and Rodney Hood from the Utah Jazz as the Cavaliers dealt away Rose, Wade, Jae Crowder and Iman Shumpert — changing nearly half their rotation.
Wade returned to Miami, mending fences with Pat Riley and finding a soft landing in a place where he won three championships.
Most of the moves outside Cleveland on Thursday were minor, including a deal in which the Portland Trail Blazers traded forward Noah Vonleh to the Chicago Bulls in exchange for the rights to center Milovan Rakovic.
Vonleh, the No. 9 overall pick by Charlotte in the 2014 NBA draft, averaged 3.6 points and 5.1 rebounds in 33 games for the Blazers this season, including 12 starts.
Rakovic currently plays in the Swiss Basketball League. He was originally drafted by Dallas in 2007, but has never played in the NBA.
