January 5, 2015

Quite a few NBA players reportedly will have new homes come Tuesday.

The Cleveland Cavaliers, Oklahoma City Thunder and New York Knicks have reached a preliminary agreement on a three-team trade, sources told Yahoo! Sports on Monday.

In the reported deal, which has not been finalized, the Knicks would send J.R. Smith and Iman Shumpert to Cleveland, the Cavaliers would ship Dion Waiters to Oklahoma City, and New York would receive Lance Thomas from the Thunder.

The Cavs also would send Lou Amundson and Alex Kirk, both of whom are playing under non-guaranteed contracts, to the Knicks and receive a protected first-round pick from the Thunder, per Yahoo! Sports’ sources. Waiters, Amundson and Kirk were pulled from Monday night’s game against the Philadelphia 76ers.
