Hours after shipping Isaiah Thomas to Los Angeles, Cleveland moved Iman Shumpert, Jae Crowder, and Derrick Rose.

Crowder is known as a defensive stopper, but has not gelled with the Cavaliers this season after being acquired from Boston in a trade during the off-season, averaging 8.3 points and 3.3 rebounds per game, his lowest totals in four seasons. The Cavs will send Jae Crowder and Derek Rose to Utah with Sacramento sending George Hill to Cleveland.

After a whirlwind of activity by the Cavaliers today, Rose found himself traded to the Utah Jazz as part of a three-way deal.

The Jazz will reportedly release Derrick Rose after he was traded from the Cavs earlier Thursday, reports Yahoo Sports Shams Charania.

Sacramento more than likely will buyout Joe Johnson and Iman Shumpert has not been healthy all season.

Then as quick as a Rose crossover, two reports surfaced that Rose might be reunited with former Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau and former teammates Jimmy Butler and Taj Gibson in Minnesota.

He's dealt with various injuries including a torn ACL.

Utah is 26-28 and sit in eighth place in 10th place in the West.
