Isaiah Thomas (CELTICS to CAVS, 2017)
Isaiah Thomas was home in Washington when he missed a phone call from Boston Celtics exec Danny Ainge. The guard then got a text from Ainge asking him to call. It was soon after that Thomas learned he had been traded to the Cavaliers. Thomas’ reaction, detailed on his website, was one of shock. At that point, he was happy to be sent to a contender. However, leaving Boston was not easy. And it has gotten more difficult since.
