Reports: Cavaliers trade Dion Waiters to Thunder in three-team blockbuster
Tuesday January 6th, 2015

The Knicks traded fan favorites J.R. Smith and Iman Shumpert to the Cavaliers on Monday night in a salary cap-clearing move. Both players were pulled off the court just minutes before New York's game against the Grizzlies. 

On Tuesday, both players said goodbye to the fans and the franchise. 

GOLLIVER: Trade grades: Cavs land Knicks' Smith, Shumpert​

Shumpert, an aspiring rapper, once recorded a song that shouted out all his New York teammates. He'll have to record a remix once he gets to know everyone in Cleveland.
