All-Star point guard isaiah thomas is going to work with new teammates after his trade to the Cleveland Cavaliers. One of them is veteran forward Jeff Green, who is also a new acquisition of Cleveland. In an ambush interview with TMZ, Green is already showing love for Thomas.

Green got asked by the TMZ reporter regarding Thomas' hip injury, which is a big issue as of the moment. According to him, he believes in what Thomas is saying about it. Last week, the 5-foot-9 playmaker told ESPN that he is going to recover from the health setback and is returning as the "same player." The reporter then questioned Green if the Cavaliers are capable of beating the Golden State Warriors and winning a title with Thomas on the team.

The 31-year-old responded and said, "that's the plan."

Green's a sleeper

When it comes to the Cavaliers' offseason, everyone is talking about either Kyrie Irving's departure or the trade that landed them Thomas. Many already forgot that the Cavs also added Green who signed with the team last July. Green is coming off a lackluster stint with the Orlando Magic where he recorded some of the worst numbers in his career. Despite this, some fans are eager to see him suit up for Cleveland. Maybe, it is because of his experience and what he can potentially bring on the court. The former fifth-overall pick is also expected to lead the second unit together with another new acquisition, Jae Crowder.

IT speaks out

In a post on The Players Tribune, Thomas shared his thoughts about the deal that saw him switch teams with Kyrie Irving. Thomas admitted that it still hurts, though he credited the Celtics for giving him the opportunity to be "great." The 28-year-old headed to Boston in 2015 and became a key contributor to the success achieved by the franchise in the last three seasons.

During that stretch, the C's made it to the first-round of the playoffs twice and last season reached as far as the Eastern Conference Finals.

After talking about the Celtics, Thomas shared his excitement to play for the Cavaliers, and alongside its franchise superstar, LeBron James. Thomas believes teams will no longer double- or triple-team him since he is teammates with "the best basketball player on the planet." It is uncertain when Thomas will be returning to action, but the Cavaliers are starting their campaign on October 17 versus his former team, the Celtics, at the Quicken Loans Arena.
