Isaiah Thomas makes clear his championship intentions for Cavaliers

Isaiah Thomas expressed his intentions in Cleveland: win a championship ... and appear in a TV show?

Thomas wasn't going to let a Twitter hater ruin his excitement over his appearance on the TV show, "Law and Order SVU." The newly minted Cleveland Cavaliers point guard tweeted about the filming on Wednesday, which drew plenty of responses from his followers.

After a user questioned Thomas for going to Cleveland "to make tv shows," Thomas responded: "yup and win championships."

Thomas, of course, went to Cleveland, because he had to. The Celtics traded him, Jae Crowder and a draft pick to the Cavaliers for star point guard Kyrie Irving. That won't stop Thomas from making the most of his time in Cleveland. He's dealing with a hip injury, but appears intent on recovery so he can play out the final year of his contract in the upcoming NBA season.

He joined a Cavaliers team that won the NBA Finals two years ago, and lost to the Golden State Warriors in last season's finals.

Reports: Knicks trade Carmelo Anthony to Thunder for two players and a pick

The New York Knicks have traded Carmelo Anthony to the Oklahoma City Thunder for Enes Kanter, Doug McDermott and a second-round draft pick, according to multiple reports.

Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN was first with the news of the deal.

The Thunder add Anthony, 33, and Paul George, acquired in a trade this summer with the Indiana Pacers,  to a perennial Western Conference playoff team led by last season's NBA MVP Russell Westbrook.

The pick going to New York is a 2018 second-rounder via the Chicago Bulls. Anthony waived his no-trade clause to agree to deal, after being convinced to do so by Westbrook and George, Wojnarowski reports.
