Koby Altman says deadline deals addressed Cavs' 'culture' issues
by ABC News

Hoping to save the  Cleveland Cavaliers from a season he likened to "marching a slow death," rookie general manager Koby Altman shook up the team with a series of franchise-altering deals before the NBA trade deadline Thursday. Altman completed three trades involving four teams, sending six players and two draft picks out the door for four players and one draft pick in return. As a result, the Cavs team that will take the floor in what could be  LeBron James' final stretch with the franchise should he bolt as a free agent in July will look nothing like the Cavs team that has stumbled to a 7-13 record since Christmas Day. Coming to Cleveland: 25-year-old combo guard Jordan Clarkson from the Los Angeles Lakers; athletic big man  Larry Nance Jr., the son of a Cavs legend, from the Lakers; plus-sized, smooth-shooting Rodney Hood from the Utah Jazz; and steady, playoff-tested point guard George Hill from the Sacramento Kings.
