Report: Cavs consulted with LeBron before trading Wade, but not other deals.
Cleveland Cavaliers general manager Koby Altman spoke to LeBron James before dealing Dwyane Wade to the Miami Heat, team sources told ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne.
The intention, according to Shelburne, was to explain to James what was behind the move. With younger backcourt players like Rodney Hood and Jordan Clarkson – as well as veteran George Hill – incoming in the Isaiah Thomas trade, the 36-year-old Wade would have seen a decrease in minutes.

This insinuates the Cavs did not consult the king on the other trades. That fact did not keep the Internet from going hard on the King.
