Dan Gilbert, the owner of the Cleveland Cavaliers, recently purchased the former Call of Duty organization 100 Thieves which was owned and run by Matthew "Nadeshot" Haag. Gilbert announced he had plans for a CS:GO team, however, it was unclear who they might pick up for the roster.
There were some rumors floating around about possible pickups over the last few weeks, and it looks like they have actually come true.
We're proud to announce that 100 Thieves is officially entering into Counter-Strike: Global Offensive! Please join us in welcoming kNg, LUCAS1, HEN1, FNX, and Bit to the team.— 100 Thieves (@100Thieves) December 13, 2017

That's right, former Immortals Henrique "HEN1" Teles, Lucas "LUCAS1" Teles, Lincoln "fnx" Lau, and Vito "kNgV-" Giuseppe have been bought out (presumably for their $600,000 asking price) and will now play alongside Bruno "BIT" Lima as a part of the 100 Thieves roster. Although these four players may have cost quite a pretty penny, their talent is unmistakable, the guaranteed Major spot is too good to pass up, and that sticker money is, oh, so tempting.
100 Thieves will now have guaranteed access to ELEAGUE Major: Boston, thanks to a majority of their new squad acquiring Legend's status at the previous major. While they are playing under a new name, these guys are all seasoned veterans when it comes to playing together. With a new identity and their issues behind them, this could be one scary team in the near future.
