If it were up to Isaiah Thomas, he won’t be on his way to another city Thursday.

“I’m tired of being traded,” Thomas said after the Cavaliers beat the Timberwolves, per cleveland.com. “That’s not a good thing, but, I just want to be where I’m wanted. I like it here. It hasn’t been as planned, but I definitely want to be here. We definitely have a real chance to win an NBA championship and I want to be a part of that.”

Thomas been subject to mass speculation about being traded after today’s 3 p.m. deadline considering how much he has struggled since returning from injury. So far, there has been no reporting indicating that the Cavs are actively shopping Thomas. If they could find an upgrade, it doesn’t seem entirely out of the question, though.
